mandie_rw: (chintz dress spring)
Oooh I'm so posty! Well, made much easier by the fact that neither of them were about new dresses, just the events that I didn't have time to write up while I had my summer class. They're not terribly exciting (and mostly already recapped here), but here's the Reading air show post, and the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion picnic.

I also did end up sewing a bit this afternoon: sewed the closures on the waistband, tacked up the swags of striped fabric, and started marking/sewing the tapes/elastics into the skirt. Got that about half done, and should probably be able to finish that tomorrow. After that I may derail the dinner dress sewing train for a day or so, just to finish off the pin-dot 1940 dress that has been draped over the back of a chair for three weeks (that I was reminded of tonight because I wrote out the Reading post)! Or maybe not. Heh. It's definitely warm enough to wear it now...

Got all the tapes and ties sewn into the dinner dress skirt today! At least, I think I got them all sewn in, haha. I still need to try it on with the petticoat to check that everything's doing what I want it to. I am currently suspicious that the skirt might want a stiff hem facing to hold it out just a little more than it's currently able to do on its own...but, again, petticoat needed to double-check that.
