This is more for my benefit than anyone else's... But if you're really that much of a masochist, help yourself.
Documentation redone: Cut for boring and repetitive content. )
Last night, [livejournal.com profile] liz_bet helped me sew the gores into my dress, trim the armholes, and re-set the sleeves. I put all the button-holes into the sleeves (9 per sleeve) while they were off the dress for the 5th time and stitched in the little inserts that will hold all the buttons. I have about 9 more buttons to put on, in order to finish the sleeves, and then the dress needs to be hemmed, but, for all intents and purposes, the dress is officially a garment at this point, rather than a collection of pieces with dress-like ambitions.

I completely redid my documentation to improve readability (whether this version is an improvement on the previous draft is debatable) and revised my construction justifications to account for the fact that my initial read of the FACTS got a couple of things reversed. (Z-spun WARP and S-spun WEFT, damnit!) The resulting documentation is still an intimidating 3 pages long. *sigh* Though now it reads more like a recipe for fabric than a conversational piece on historic fabric creation techniques.

Tonight I will go over to Eithni's place to get further help with my documentation, and maybe sew the last of the buttons on my dress and have someone pin up the hem. Or maybe I'll just take the fabric for Zig's new fighting pants with me and work on those... That's easy enough to do that I won't require any help.
