This is as far as I’ve gotten today with the dress:
I’m really quite pleased with it, but I’ve run into another minor problem. I added a lining under the skirt, since some of the old velveteen is worn a little thin. It’s served it’s purpose, but now I have to hem both the lining and the skirt, and the bottom of the skirt is uneven, because of having to patch together pieces for it. I doubt if I’m going to make me self-imposed deadline now, but I’m a lot closer.
Two other things have slowed me down today – about a foot of snow, and 2 boys who were back and forth and in an out all day! Plus, of course, my poor little Andre who has only gone out 2 or 3 times today. Being vertically challenges, he’s all for trying it, but the deeper snow gives him a little trouble. Here’s a shot of the front porch:
It started about 6:00 this morning, and this was taken at 6:00 this evening. Walking in snow this deep is really tiring! Hopefully, my snow removal crew will be here soon!
