The corded bodice binding has taken MUCH longer than I thought/hoped it would. Those wretched tabs. I'm about ¾ of the way done with the bottom (tab) end. So I have just a bit of the bottom left and all the top. I also need to make a new eyelet hole in the corded bodice (so they are even again) and trim my hat.
I was sort of hoping I might be able to throw a quick fan together tomorrow. I wanted something similar to this, as the feather one I made last year is too much with this outfit. There is no way it will happen now with company to pick up, fake hair to curl/braid, errands to run, so much hand sewing left to do and an early rack time tomorrow night. Umm... I probably should vacuum before my company comes too. There are threads and snips of ribbon everywhere. :>
I'll just have to deal with a non-period folding fan. Oh well. Next year, right? :>
