According to where I am in the number of steps in the directions, I am 65% done. I'm going to say more like 50, because there's still a lot left to go, including hem and zipper. But the bodice is together.
I forgot how many little steps are in between all the big steps. Pinning, pressing and trimming.
I found buttons that I'm not necessarily crazy about, but will do. I realized that the fabric from which I want to make my sash isn't really long enough. So far small potatos, and it's coming along.
