Ballgown: Day 25 (Or, Dresshood)

It's fumbling ever closer towards dresshood: the skirt is together; the hem is sewn; the godet is neatly sandwiched between three layers of silk. I have to carry the dress like a small child between my table and the machine and the ironing board, supporting the weight of the skirt. Today I set the lining into the bodice, and sew in the sleeve - then it really will look like a dress.
