This is where I am now. Plant stands can be surprisingly useful while sewing. Presenting the decoy-me :)
|The hem pinned on and the front pinned (a bit wonkily) closed. The petticoat is not final, still looking for suitable fabric.|
|The torso part here is a couple of pillows trussed up in the stays. It's considerably flatter in the chest than I am, but I mainly put this contraption together to pleat an pin the hem so it doesn't matter.|
I have sewn other things though. Easter is a long four day weekend around here, so I really indulged myself and sewed like never before. I produced a dress, a spring coat and two pairs of shorts for dance.
