J's housecoat is finally done and my challenging dress which had so many sections. The reviews of both should show up soon on the Pattern Review widgets at the right. J was excited about
the pockets which I put over the side seams, just below her sleeves. Actually she helped me determine where they would be. I was going to put them right at the hem which she pointed out would be too low. I do wish I'd risked on the dress and sewn it in velvet but it's fine in velour. Looking at this photo, though, I think it's time to replace the eight-year-old shoes!
