To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. Isaiah 61:3

1863 Dress Project: Sleeves Are In!!!

Huzzah!!  Sleeves made and set in!  Usually sleeves are a thorn in the side for me, but these babies went in smoothly!!  Soooooo excited about that!  No wailing or gnashing of teeth with these!  I tried the bodice on this morning and it fit perfectly!  Now all that is left for this part is to purchase more buttons to cover for the tabs.....

Sooooo close!  Need to make under sleeves...will be doing that tomorrow....
