I am so close to finishing. I’ve attached my skirt, added eyelets, hemmed my skirt, about to hem my chamise, and finish adding thread around the eyelets. I don’t know if I have time today to get the sleeves done. I’m going to try. And iced decide to do a simple slipper to add to the ensemble. So let me show you what I’ve done.
I decided to go with grommets for extra durability. And of course later I was shown an article that says this actually can weaken linen. But since I did one whole side before I saw this, I kept going.
After adding the grommets, I loosely added the skirt to see if it needed any adjustments. Got my boyfriend to confirm the placement of the skirt and where to hem it.
I also rolled and hemmed the outer circumference of my sleeve. I debated on adding possible homemade binding tape, but didn’t want it to distract from the neckline.
So I need to hem the chamise. Make the sleeves if time still allows. Cover grommets with silver thread. Make slippers from leftover fabric. And then I’ll be done.
