The muslin interlining
While I was stressing over the problematic bodice, I turned my attention to the easy lace jacket/overlay. It only gave me one problem, which was putting the sleeves in twice because the first time they were too long. Above is the front, below is the back. It just slips over the head, so there is no opening. I really wanted to do a curved seam in the back, like Lady Sybil's dress, but decided I'd spare myself the extra work. :)
Here is the side seam of the skirt. The pins are markings for the hooks and eyes.
That was today's job. 17 hooks and eyes. Blah. I don't enjoy sewing hooks and eyes, especially when I accidentally put 7 of them on backwards.
Let's hope the hem goes well, and then the petticoat gets whipped up really fast! Perhaps (if I have time) I'll get some pictures up of the accessories - jewelry, gloves, and shoes, sometime next week.
P.S. The pictures make my fabric look gray. It is more blue in real life.
