I am still plodding along slowly with the front-lacing blue dress.
I have sewn and edge-stitched the front and neck edges of the bodice and tacked the armholes into place. The tiny bones fit in very nicely and I am extremely happy with how that part turned out. I just sewed a small casing between the interlining and base lining and slotted them in.
Next I will dig out a chemise and try it on. That is always the daunting part! Then, I will stab stitch and edge stitch the armholes.
