So the gold Durer frock is assembled, back view above. The only bit of fabric not attached is the trip for the neckline.  I may also need to piece fill the hem- see the short bit? I tried it on last night when it got to the point of basically being a dress*. Eek, feels a bit small in bodice circumference now? I am so hoping that it will a) work better with fastenings applied. b) relax/ease a bit with wear.

So what still needs doing?
-ditch stitch bodice lining down.
-sew on the lacing rings and buttons
-apply the neck trim
-make cords for lacing and horizontal closure.
-mark and sew hem

I so want to do this now. What I need to do though is clear a space in the back yard for bricks and then put bricks there. Grumph, want to sew.

*thanks to [livejournal.com profile] splodgenoodles  and [livejournal.com profile] tenbears  for keeping me company through lots of seam grading and clippage, some handsewing.


I just put these bricks here for storage. Twasn't as hard as it would have been if my neighbour hadn't helped. She wanted them out of her garden, I want a brick front path eventually. We are both now slightly happier and more tired.
