Newest Addy Creation

Straight from the sewing table:
This is a sneak peek of another Civil War Era dress I am making for AG Addy. Round collar, faux closure front (will have decorative buttons), short gathered sleeves with gathered cuffs, and a full skirt complete with growth tucks.
Tonight is the first time I've sat at my sewing table in a week. Organizing the AGPT spring sewing swap took up last week and the weekend. Now that everybody is happily sewing their assignments, and things around the house have calmed down, I can get back to my sewing. This poor dress has been waiting for me to gather the sleeves and skirt so I can get it done.
If all goes according to plan, I'll be working on a Colonial outfit or two after this dress is done.
