The Red Dress - Part Three
A Lining, Almost!
I actually got quite a bit of work done on the dress this weekend. The lining is mostly made, you can see the bodice below. It still needs the sleeves inserted, but they are done and ready.
The sleeve hems having facings, like the neck. The original pattern had sleeve facings, so I just incorporated them into the full sleeve lining.
The skirt lining is complete, installed and just needs to be trimmed. You can also see the darts on the inside in the photo below.
There isn't much left for this one, just inserting those sleeves, inserting the bodice lining and hems! Maybe tomorrow I'll get that done, just maybe. Some projects are slower than others, and this is one of them. I'd rather keep it a slower and make everything as nice as possible.
Parting Shot: V-Day Flowers. My husband surprised me with a lovely corsage for the Valentine's Banquet that we attended Friday night! We also had to sing in a mixed ensemble, so it was nice to have something special and pretty to wear. Corsages are a bit old-fashioned, and it did get a few looks since there weren't that many being worn. As I said to my husband, "Raise the bar."
