Don't we look fabulous? This was our status at 3pm on day seven. As you can see my lining was yet to attached and I was still attaching the trim. The photo doesn't do justice to the exquisite fabric used by my colleagues. My favourites were Poppykettle's stunning teal and blue tweed and Marion's beautiful pale blue silk and wool.
Only the pockets to go now, but my progress may be interrupted by the urgency of finishing a dress for Sydney Frocktails on 18 February. I've left the pocket templates in place to give you a sense of what the finished product will look like. The braids and buttons were purchased in Alveiro, Portugal. The shop was an absolute treasure trove of braids and buttons. I would have bought more if not for the "cash only" requirement.
