Today was also Grommet Bashing day. I don't particularly like putting in grommets, mostly because I can't seem to avoid hitting my thumb. Sure enough, while bashing the grommets into the my 15th century Merchant bodice I slammed the hammer into my thumb knuckle. Here is the finished bodice.

I also did the grommets for the Bride's bodice. She came over for a fitting to see if I had to make any more adjustments so on went the ugly fitting straps again.
I did the front closure ones and the front and back of where she wants the removable shoulder straps. Tomorrow I will start on the skirted portion of the bodice.
So, that is how I spent my day. Thankfully, no more Princess hats to work on. I do need to start some "Pirate" head wraps for the boys.
