I’m *this close* to being done with the new outfit. I cartridge-pleated up the black wool skirt and attached the waistband (note: I really do a lot of hand-sewing for someone who hates hand-sewing). Let it hang on Sunday so I can hem it tonight or tomorrow. Hemming will be by hand (see note). I’d use steam-a-seam except I haven’t had good luck with that on wool; works better on silk due to the lighter weight and crisper hand.
