Gosh, I wasn't expecting to be done with so much time to spare. I forget that vintage sewing takes so much less time than historical sewing, even with working out the pattern and making lots of mistakes!
I had some fiddles in finishing the dress, of course. Finishing always takes more time than you think. I messed with the hem more than once and I may mess with it again - first it was too thick and wide, now I feel it might be just a tad too long. I wanted a skirt length that would work for both day and evening, but I'm not sure this length is flattering - the shorter it goes, the less formal, though...
