I’m making good progress on my 1840 copper penny dress. The skirt has been attached with lovely little cartridge pleats. It is a painful process but they look so lovely! The hem was finished yesterday and I was 1/4 way through putting on the hooks and eyes when I dumped my coke on it!
If it had been silk, the dress-that I’ve never worn, that I need badly for mother’s day and that I’ve worked hours on would have been RUINED! I don’t even want to think about how much money that would have been. But my mystery fabric looks like it will look fine after a quick rinse under the tap. I have to wait until it dries to finish the hooks and eyes, give it its final press and then try it on.
