Sigh…. and my plan for the fastening should work. So I did have enough trim for the skirt hem with some mad joining, so I’ll have to tidy that later.
My plan to use the trim that is now on the skirt was to us that on the hips of the bodice. But I have alternatives to use all the figure 8 pieces vertically instead.
Right now I have been colonised by a cat who has wedgefd himself under my hands and phone- I have a slide out querty keyboard so it’s nice to rest my hands on his purring face 😉
