To all the mothers out there, I hope you had a great day!
In other news….the sleeves are finished which means there is no more trim to sew on!! Watch me do a happy dance! I did run out of silver trim on the last bit of the sleeve, wouldn’t you know it! So I had to run to the trim store today which turned out to be a bad idea. Everyone and their closest relatives were out and about. There was no parking. I had to stop in a loading zone and run into get my measly 1 yard of trim of which I only needed a portion. However, it was better to brave the crowds rather than wait until next weekend to be able to finish the last bit of sleeve.
It should be easy here on out…just a waistband, sash, buttons and buttonholes. Whew that looks like more that it really is depending on how hard the buttonholes are to put in which may be very hard indeed since I have yet to be successful with buttonholes.
Baby steps. Attaching bodice and skirt to a waistband is up next.
