The grand plan was to take some snapshots while I was sewing, but once I get into the rhythm of making something, I always forget to take pictures. Here is one of my new eighth-inch hemming foot.

At first it was pretty rough but once I got the physical flow it is so easy to make the neatest, narrowest hem.

Here is the narrow hem on the sash.

Here is the work in progress hanging up. It is probably over 80% done.

On the left is the back view where you can see the outer layer, which will be a full 360 degrees when it is done with a handkerchief hem. The hem will have to be trimmed down when K comes down for the fitting this weekend.

On the right you can see what the inside lining looks like. It is a simple dress with a bodice. The bodice is interlined with a tightly woven cotton so the dress provides a certain amount of support.

A peek inside.

So far so good… I will breathe a bit easier if the fitting goes well.  If there is a problem, I will have only one week to make a fix. The big day is on the 30th.
