Ruffles! On my 1860s dress

For 2 days I worked on ruffles.  First, cutting all the strips, then sewing all the gathering threads, gathering them and sewing them on to the skirt......all so time consuming and rather boring.

But, this afternoon I started the bodice and thankfully it is going along quickly.  I am getting rather anxious to finish all these dresses.

Cathy and Jen's are ready for their final fittings!

Hopefully photos tomorrow.  I have to take up my hoop skirt before the skirt will look good on it.  I must say, that skirt weighs a ton!
