Just a quick note:
Yesterday and this morning, I finished weaving my double-happiness ribbon, wet-finished it, and basted a marking line where the edges of the ribbon will be turned under. I also applied the piping to the facing, made a few more hem samples for the dress, and applied lace to the sleeves. Now I’m about halfway through putting on the pearls, but it’s almost time to leave for Sharon’s, so I’ve packed things carefully away, and will be heading up there as soon as I finish this entry.
Today we will (hopefully) get the dress and coat to the point where they’re ready to be hemmed, so there will be photos later today! Stay tuned for new developments.
