Another day of not meeting my goals. Besides the fact that I'm a slow hand-sewer anyway, I had to spend 1.5 hrs on the phone with Comcast, health and dental insurance people, and a couple dentists, so that certainly didn't help. And I should have known not to try to sew to a Tom Hanks movie I'd never seen. There were definitely parts of Sully where I was too caught up in the movie to sew. 

But excuses aside, I did pleat the train to the waistband, and the waistband is close to completion. I'm going to flip it to the inside of the train and stitch it in place, and it needs hooks and eyes, but otherwise it's done. I also now have more than half of the box pleated trim sewn on, and all of it is pinned into place. I also had to whip the edges of where I pieced parts of the underside of the train. And last night (because I'm terrible at going to bed on time), after I posted, I stayed up and did some of the base painting of the details on the medals.

I'm not allowing myself to do any more tonight, since I got less than 6 hours of sleep last night, so I seriously better get a lot done tomorrow evening. What's the chance that I can finish the train and get a good chunk of the bodice trim done? (I'd say slim-to-none.)
