I sewed!

Though to be honest, it was only one seam. I dyed the organza for the underside of my train the other day, cut it yesterday, and sewed the two pieces together today. And I started to press it (I'm doing a flat-felled seam). But then I had to go to dance class and rehearsal. So yeah, things are moving super slowly around here. And my parents are coming tomorrow through Monday, so I highly doubt I'll be doing any sewing while they're here, though at the same time, I really want to get to a point where I have hand-sewing to do at rehearsal, because I have so much downtime playing Miep.

I have just about finished collecting all the supplies, though! I found a nice soft tulle for all the ruching, and I found a waayyy better lace than the one I originally had to settle on. Joanns is carrying a new lace that is just a touch ivory, and is embroidered lace on a mesh background, gathered, and 3.5" wide. I've picked up 20 yards already, so I think I only need about three more. Naturally, it's way more expensive than the cheap-looking lace, even after a 60% off coupon, but I know it's going to be worth it. Other than those three yards, I think all I need left is the corset busk and turquoise serger thread for some rolled hems. Oh, and to actually get to work!
