|Look at that messy sewing table! This fabric has taken over!|
No I don't mind that the tiny stitches aren't perfect, looking at extant examples it didn't seem like they really bothered to always line them up either.
I sewed the front skirt panels to the back and started pleating! Thankfully pleating the skirt to the bodice went a lot faster than I thought it would. After I got the pleats sewn onto the bodice I decided to pause for the day, but only after I tried it on! I really like how this gown is coming along and I'm excited to sew in the sleeves and lining tomorrow!
