When I post the next picture, they will be done and modeled! Last night I assembled the back and front skirt panels before bed. This morning I stitched the side seams, gathered and attached the skirts to the bodices. I am pretty happy with my gathers this time, but does anyone who sews not hate gathering??
I took a better picture--with my camera instead of my iPod--to celebrate my progress:
I still have to put in the invisible zipper and hem the skirt, and then they'll be done! Ready for Easter after all! Not so my first project, which was supposed to turn into bunny treat bags. Oh well. Maybe next year!
