Almost done

Just a little teaser to prove I'm still here, and I'm still sewing.

I'm also, at this point, just about done.  Today we visited my aunt, then went to NJ for dinner with Mario's family and barely made it home in time to watch Game of Thrones.  I am done.

The skirt, not so much.  But close - it's further along than this, I've got the buttons on, the waist facing is done, and for some reason - possibly to add complication to a project that was going too smoothly - I added boning to the high waist.

And because I hate bias binding so much, I did the scallops on both sides and used twice as much of it.  The scallops are more even than they look in this photo; the skirt was draped over a pile of rubble on my sewing table.

And now it's 11:00 p.m., practically Monday again already.  Wasn't it just Friday?

I definitely know that "wasn't it just Friday?" feeling. I am intrigued by the scallops.
