back to the 18thc

To do all the little finishings on the chintz gown that somehow manage to take hours and hours! Hem, a quick-and-dirty ugly tuck to fix the gappy neckline, remembering that I wanted to put boning in the bodice seams, loops for hoiking up the skirt...etc. etc.

But now it's ready to trim! *waves very tiny celebration flag* I'll still be in good shape if I can get that done this week, and still have a week to make the cap. And with that silly hat I can forego a cap if need be, though I'd rather have one than not.

Took pics while it was still light out, so all the aforementioned things aren't quite done to it as of these pics. Close enough to get the idea, though.
