It's been awhile, huh?
I'm sure my mom thinks I'm totally crazy, as I call her almost every night with questions like, "what is a baste stitch?", and, "what does CLEAN FINISH mean?" Not only that, but the ladies at the fabric store see me every day because I'm always getting the wrong things. Grommets? I didn't even know what a grommet was before starting this project. Now I'm thinking grommets are pretty slick, and I'm wondering what else I can use them for...
Boning? I didn't know the hard plastic in a bodice was called boning, but I sure had fun telling Dan about it..."lets get home and bone." Boy was he disappointed.
I'm nearly finished with the bodice, and then it's on to the skirt. I spend about 2 hours on it every night after the boys go to bed.
