The Fabric

The fabric has finally arrived! I can’t believe how long it took! I guess it did come from California, which is basically a continent away. In any case, I am now so excited to start working on the final dress!

The hand-sewing goes faster than I expected, but still, it does go awfully slow.

Beautiful linen:

The pink thread is my hand basting that marks my seam position and keeps me sewing in a straight line:

The bodice lining on the form (wrinkly, I know!):

Isn’t the cotton voile pretty? I finished the back of the bodice, pleats featured here:

I also finished attaching the lace to the front bodice:

So pretty!
