I finished my 1930s Christmas dress, and can't wait to wear it tomorrow. It looks TERRIB on the hanger (as do all my other '30s frocks), but really cute worn - I'll take pictures to share. I was really pleased with the pattern - Decades of Style 3007 "Button Dress," - although I did have to take it in quite a bit at the side seams (better than having to let it out, right?). I'll do a pattern review later...

Currently I've got two applied and one pinned (the flutes). I have a horizontal swag to go on top of the flutes, and I'm also thinking there needs to be another pleat or ruffle-somethin' between the deep pleats and the second tier ruffle-puff, just at the back.

And finally....FINALLY...I've put in an order for button hooks.
