After the fitting and pinning of this bodice last time Katie was home, I marked everything, took it all apart, made a pattern to use on the blue silk coming up, and then cut linings.
This dress was constructed after a bit more travel to get back up to Traverse City MI (another 2 hours north), and in between all the boating activities we had planned with a group of other Island Packet boat owners.
Again, I anticipate having finished pics of this dress on the recipient in the next few days. It should be arriving by airmail this afternoon (Friday) in Georgia.
