Irish Dress

Day 3

This project would go so much faster if my Fibromyalgia would just stop of a few days. As it is I can only sew for about 45 minutes at a time. It's annoying.

Anyway, sorry about that. I really have to recommend Corsetmaking.com. I wrote them with a question and they got back to me very quickly. I placed an order today for more bones and some grommets and I received a notification from UPS about 1/2 hour later saying it was shipping. That's what I call fast service.
OK, on to sewing. I started with the skirt today. As it is a split skirt I wrapped a length of the green fabric around myself about 1 1/2 times. Cut and hemmed the bottom and sides.

Hmmm, all that needs to fit on that top? Yikes. OK, time to resort to drastic measures. I grabbed a needle and a spool of white thread and did a very long running stitch. That should help me get the gathers right.

Worked like a charm. I love it when a plan comes together. Pinned it on and checked the hem.

It all looks good. It actually looks like a dress.

I'll have to attach the skirt latter, maybe tonight.
