The skirt facing and hem tape are done. Next is the skirt pocket.
I found some petersham for a belt through Judith M; I'm thinking of the loden as it will be nearer the color of the dress trim, or maybe the espresso brown. It is not 100% natural, but I can't find any that 1) I can afford and 2) is the right size. With luck I'll have this done by the end of August and then can work on another bonnet and be all set for October.
