Just another peek. I love this fabric. It seems to get softer the more you handle it.
The dress is constructed, save the sleeves. I will do that today. A commenter asked the other day when discussing French seams about setting in sleeves. Yes, you can do the French seams with gathered fabric to set a sleeve in "in the round." I set in almost all sleeves in the round. That is what is most comfortable I think.
After I set in the sleeves, it is trim the neck with entredeux and lace, attach the lace edging to the hem and sleeves, then buttons and buttonholes. Almost there. It needs a slip too.
I have a couple of quick things I want to do, then it is onto the christening gown.
Can I even tell you how crazy those few granitos on the right are driving me? It has been everything in me so far not to pick them out and redo them. It will depend on how "glaring" they are to me when the dress is finished.
