Some progress is better than none.

like re-building Rome So while waiting for those lingerie patterns I ordered for a friend from So Vintage patterns (I accidentally had them sent to New Mexico instead of England… don’t ask) I finally got working on this kimono again to get me in the mood and to get my hand-sewing back up to speed. The lace has been hand whipped on both sleeves now, the side seams have been french-seamed and lace has been basted in place all around the front edges. That will definitely take more than a couple of evenings to sew on… but Rome wasn’t built in a day, or even in a year-  which is the length of time this kimono has been in-work.

Some progress is better than none and it’s getting there!
