momentum is a wonderful thing

*stretches* Okay, time for a break! May I just say it’s been really fun to do nothing but sew the last two days. I haven’t had a sewing marathon like this in way too long. I see still being slightly sickly has its advantages. :>

As you can see I’ve finished up the bodice. I haven’t finished the sleeves because I want them a little shorter. I have to try the gown on to determine the new length and I want to get the skirts on first (or at least that back section secured). I’m going to eat some dinner and then start work on the skirts. My goal is to get them pleated and attached before bedtime. That would leave only the hem and hooks & eyes tomorrow. *squee*

I’m so happy with how well this project is going! I may have time to do sleeve ruffles and some fabric trimming after all – woo hoo! :>

Impressed is good. :> I have to say it was fun to talk and work at the same time. It had the tedious pinning and marking I was doing go by much quicker - thanks Luv! :>

Gorgeous! How are you going to trim it?

Thanks! Self-fabric ruching, if I have time. If not corsage of silk hydrangeas at the bosom probably. :>
