progress of a sort

The Picnic Dress is progressing but slowly. I didn't get nearly as much done as I needed to yesterday, thanks to real life and my inability to focus. *sigh*

The bodice is all together, the sleeves all but attached and hemmed and skirts of the polanise in various stages of being prepped for attachment. I need to put it all together and trim it. I was hoping to get away with not having a belt but I don't think that is going to work so that is added to my list.

I also have ruffles to attach to the skirt, the hat to trim and fastenings to add to everything. Oh and I have no idea what else I'm wearing this weekend. It's all coming out of the closet but still I useally have a plan at this point. I am SO overwhelmed but it's too late to stop and say oh well. Thank goodness I'll have some down time Thrusday night... I'm going to need it!

Thanks - I'm trying! :>

Isabella and I are carpooling together and expect to get in between 4-5pm. I guess you guys are getting in later so I'll see you when you get to the hotel! Do send me a text when you have landed and/or leave on the shuttle...

Dress Dummies

So I notice that you drape on both the dress dummy and yourself. Do you drape it on the dummy and then try it on after you think you have a good fit? I've got a feeling this is one of those questions where everyone does it differently but I'm just wondering.
