Here is my finished underbodice with my latest skirt toile.



And the back:



You can see I've tacked a zip in for general fitting but it is now on hold until I have a fitting partner.

Bunting and bridesmaids' outfits now.

Looking good! I love the shape of the skirt.

Oh, that is going to be so pretty.
It's just fabric. We can out-think it.

Right I'm really fed up now!

My friend was supposed to be coming to stay next weekend and she was going to help me fit my dress. Then Leeds went into Tier 2 and she can't anymore.

Then my mum was supposed to be coming from France at some point, so she would have been able to help but now (for various) reasons, she can't.

Now London is in Tier 2 so even if I could find someone else or settle for a non-sewing person's point of view it's not allowed.

I know there are much bigger problems in the world right now, but I would just love to get on with my dress and forget about everything else for a bit, but I can't because it's just silly to cut out the overlay and the skirt when I am not confident with the fit at the bust and waist.

Moan over.

What a pain.   :(  And what a shame we can't do it virtually - we have all the expert assistance you could need here.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

It’s a shame.  But even people visiting are supposed to keep their distance!

Actually, we could.  I've done a fitting with a member of the previous forum/site.
A measly 2.5m of stash used so far!

I got quite far with my mum on a video chat, but I really wanted to have someone helping in real life before I went any further.

Still 15 month until the wedding, so plenty of time but I’m just a bit fed up! Plus we haven’t sent invites yet and I’m already planning how to uninvite people if government restrictions make that necessary!!
