New Silk Anglaise

I first cut out the pieces for this dress over a year ago. And then I did nothing with them. But when Stephanie proposed a Williamsburg trip, I figured it was time to sew this up.

It’s nearly finished now (which is good, because I need it this Saturday); I just have to finish some interior seams. Everything is hand sewn except the long skirt seams.

I still dragged my feet on sewing, even after I had committed to finishing it. Less than two weeks ago, I only had some of the bodice together.

And then there were sleeves.

Skirt pleated and attached. This was a pain to get to lay flat, but after a couple tries I got it.

Trimming.

First try-on, when I had only trimmed one sleeve so far.
