I began working on this project between Christmas and New Years. I bought the kit from Gail Wilson Designs in one of her sales. The special offer was a bundle that included the doll kit, stand kit and book kit. I always enjoy working on Gail's kits because I always learn how to do something new. Jane's dress includes cartridge pleating to attach the sleeves and the skirt. I gathered the skirt 4 times, and attempted to connect it 3 times before I was satisfied! I need to use a small zig zag around the skirt edges and do the hem next. Then the silk sash, bow and buttons, and the dress will be done.
Today I bought thread to match the silk sash. I'm fighting off a sore throat that wants to become a full blown cold, so that might be all I accomplish today! I find I can do my best work when I'm not sick!
