It's Saturday night and I'm nearly finished with the first item I'm making for Baby -- a petticoat. I'm just waiting for the tape for the ties to come in and I need to add buttons around the waist for a second petticoat. For that, I'll make a cotton one and a wool one. This was fun to make because I got to practice my French handsewing again -- something I don't get to do very often. I didn't want the petticoats to be really fancy (I'm saving that for the dress), so I settled on a Single Hemstitch (my book calls it a Half Hemstitch). I liked how it turned out and it didn't take terribly long. Probably about 8 hours total.
