I am determined to finish my Little Mermaid bodice today. That means neck and armhole frills, bias facings on the edges, the last few eyelets, and boning a couple of the seams. It seems doable, especially since I have pretty much all afternoon and evening to work on it.

I really want to get to work on my Regency stays. I want to finish them by Monday, because I'll be going away for the following weekend and then again after, so I need to get my Lost Hope fairy dress mocked-up and started since I won't be able to work on it while travelling. I'm going to hand sew a reticule while I'm away; I need somewhere to put my camera at CoCo! Lots of driving and plane time to get that done. My inspiration (mine will probably be much plainer):

What's left:

  • Little Mermaid bodice

  • Regency stays

  • reticule

  • Lost Hope fairy dress

  • Lost Hope fairy turban? (This may just end up being a piece of fabric wrapped around my head and pinned. But it may also be a fixed turban. tbd)

  • *Bonus*: 1950s play suit (If I have the time. I have all the stuff for it. This one would be for Thursday.)

I bought this pair of gloves on Etsy for Little Mermaid. I think they should fit. Then I should have all my accessories ready for the Gala (once the reticule is done). Whew! Lots of stuff! Better get to work!

You got this! You can do it all! (and if you can't, I'll be ready with my needle to help in LA!)

Thanks for the offer! I actually get in at a pretty decent time on Wednesday, so should have all evening to finish up whatever doesn't get done during the plane trip. But I really don't think it should be that much left to do by then.

We are there on Wednesday, too. I'll probably be a giant mess and hand you a stapler to do the hem of my gala gown.

Nah. We'll have a lovely dinner and then work like mad elves finishing off things. It'll be epic!

Go you! I powered through on the LostHope Fairy and finished last night. I think at two point it's the only way. You've got a brilliant idea about the turban. I should just hem my fabric and drape it!

I can't take any credit for the turban idea. It's all Jen's wrapped turban tutorial video. :) Congrats on checking one more off the list!
