I'll be working on beading the bodice for next few days (remember I ditched the first bodice when I tried to remove the first, unsuitable trim) and then back to the waist beading. And then I'll be sitting here waiting for her to come home and try it on.
The wedding is in May, which means I am WELL ahead of schedule, a first in my entire life. She's home on March 10th and we will finalize fitting, I put the permanent side seams in, line the bodice and skirt, hem and be done! I am happy with how it is all coming together.
