While cutting out the nightgown I realised that the fabric is too sheer to leave unlined, and not self-lined or that'll be a whiter bodice & top half of skirt. I checked my spreadsheets to see if I had something suitable and had a couple of options. This is the one I'll go with simply because it's already pre-shrunk. WIN.
The motif on the white is 3cm (2 1/4") if you're interested.
I had to remind a friend that it isn't the town hall & he doesn't get a vote in whether I do or don't line it.
I got the skirt & sleeve seamed & overlocked, with the hem
overlocked ready to turn & stitch. Tomorrow night I cut out the
facings & linings - after I see Thor 2. Wednesday I assemble the
bodice, make the skirt & sleeve plackets (so I can roll up the
sleeves if I overheat). Thursday haircut + waist & sleeves cuffs,
Friday insert sleeves. Saturday - party on!
