We Have Progress

The Open Robe is slowly coming along. Over the weekend I added the lining, sewed the pleats down, and sewed the bodice pieces together. I have to make a little adjustment on the side back seams. They need to be taken in just a hair. Other than that, it fits very nicely. I still need to make the sleeves, hem the skirt, and add the hooks and eyes to the closure. I hope to have it finished by Friday so I can wear it for a Ladies Tea on Friday night.
