Progress pics! (See Aubry, never say I don't deliver when you *ahem* ask!)
Let's see, so far I've done the back en fourreau pleats (twice *sigh*), assembled the bodice (minus sleeves), added panels to the skirt and begun the skirt pleating.
The pleating as gone as well as it usually does. I spent most of Sunday working on it without much to show for my effort. Razzen-franzzen!!! After doing the pleats so many times I lost tract, I finially got them to a point where I liked the look but they didn't fit the bodice. So I finally came to the conclusion that a total of three panels of fabric just wasn’t enough fullness for the look I wanted. So next step is to add more fabric to the skirt. And of course redo the pleats. *big sigh*
Thanks to Real Life (TM) and a lovely visit on Monday with Casey (happy butt wiggle) I haven't gotten back to it... hopefully tonight, definitely Friday!
