The Purple Wedding Dress - Lining

Today I finished attaching the lovely soft silk habotai lining! Because of the way the sleeves are attached, I had to hand sew around the arm hole, but it didn't take long.

After that, I sewed the skirt together (it's a full circle and a half!), added the pockets, played around with the pleating and finally sewed it on the bodice. It's finally starting to look like a dress!

Tomorrow I'll fit it on the bride, then I need to figure out how much structure to add (via built-in petticoat), and a quick zipper and hem later she'll be done!
