You're right; the mental exercises of a 1912 evening dress are exhausting! I've been thinking about the design of my own dress for ages, and it's still not quite there. And you've definitely got a point about not making it perfectly on the first go - I never do, either, and that's an especially good thing to keep in mind for 19-teens!

And good luck with your new start!

Thanks! Yeah it has been kinda nice to see others struggling with this project too, just to know that I'm not alone. Its the one nice thing about the 100th anniversary - almost everyone I know is making a 1912 evening dress at the same time. So helpful and so much support!
