Olive is officially on her way! I bought the lining, closures and thread I needed to get started.
The bodice is well and truly started. The original pattern has gathers at the waist but I did big pleats instead to try and match the inspiration.
And I want to use the Dorset buttons I made ages ago! (Alas, I will need to make more) but I think they will work out well.
Its hard to get started but once I have, it is easier to keep going (unless I leave the country of course.)
