pimpernel pt one done!
Well I was wrong about almost being done with the petticoat pleating. I had done it in the wrong direction,
like this <--CB--> in the back
instead of this -->CB<--

A little thing in the grand scheme of things but I'm particular so I took out all the pins and redid the back pleats. I was able to tweak my pleat size though so both panels ended up the exact right size. THAT never happens! I usually have to gather up the pleats somewhat to fit.

So the petticoat is all done now, except for the hem. I'm wondering if it shouldn't be fuller now that I have it on Narcissa but I think I need to finish the rest of the frock and see what the fabric status is before I contemplate ripping the back section apart and adding a new panel. Like I'll have the time to do that before CC anyway... lalala

Thanks so much for your responses to the tooth trim query - I'll respond to your comments later... You guys really are the best! :>

Agh, I did that very same think on one (if not two) of my CW skirts. So VERY smart. *g*

The sad thing is I do it on at least one section of every pleated skirt I make. So sad!
