Some more progress and problems on the Revolution Dress...
The back pleats look good, all sewn down with running stitches. I did the back pleats wrong, but only became aware of that mistake after I'd sewn them all down by hand. They're going to stay, as I'm on a deadline, but I know better for next time (p.s., special thanks to Abby and Hallie for setting me straight)
Up next is pleating the en fourreau part of the skirt (the piece that was all cut in one with the bodice back pleats) into the waist, then pleating up and adding the two additional skirt panels that will come around to the front.
