Petticoat Done!

And so it begins...my biggest UFO ever to be undertaken. What's that you say? Well it's the MINA RED GOWN from BRAM STROKER'S DRACULA. I finally feel able to tackle it this year. I'm gonna do it.

First step, foundations. DONE! All that's left is some thread trimming...but wait..that's Michael's job! Ahahahahaha!

Wish me luck people, I'm really gonna need it. Especially when it comes to the handsewing section. God I hate handsewing.
