At least HE'S going to have something to wear.
I'm hoping to get the Venetians cut this evening and maybe sew some more eyelets so I can make at least a little progress on my dress-- especially since it needs to be wearable in a week. Tomorrow's project is hopefully finishing Gandhi's trousers and starting on my camisia. He's celebrating Father's Day by watching our kids so I can sew. There was some mention of a movie.
Shopping yesterday went nicely. I picked up the cotton voile I used for his shirt and some batiste for my camisia. I also picked up about 25 yards of lace to do the insertions. There's a thicker one for the zig-zags of the sleeves and a coordinating thinner one for between the body pieces. I'm pretty excited about it. Certainly nicer than what I was making. I washed the lace this morning and then spent about an hour and a half blocking and ironing it. It didn't shrink all that much, which was a nice surprise. I promised Gandhi if the camisia isn't going quickly tomorrow, I'll change plans and do a quick plain one for the wedding next weekend and get back to working on the one for the IRCC afterward. He's worried about more frustration hitting with the tight deadline. He's probably right, but I also want to see some progress on the project. Especially since I'm way overdue for sending in an update.
