I took apart the plaid silk to redo the bodice. I had to take a small piece of out the skirt but it isn't enough to change it dramatically. I made the hooks and eyes tape ala the sheer PP dress. The bodice is put back together and now adding the piping and then the sleeves. It should be done by Boonesfield.

Checked Homespun

Here is the check dress. Only have the unstarched petticoat under so it is a bit flat. Talk about plain; but this is what I wanted. A good utilitarian dress. Probably could bring in the corset a bit.

The cording is done!! Now to put on the waist band, starch and iron. The cording goes from my ankles to just above the knee...or at least that's the plan.
