It's a shirt! I have spent so long on this project just trusting the books--"yes, David Page Coffin's Shirtmaking, of course a yoke should extend no further than the fullness of the shoulderblade; yes, Dress Pattern Designing, unquestionably that is what a collar ought to look like"--that to see it actually come together is just heartwarming. It's like that moment when a baby's cute useless legs become functional walking machines. Or something like that.
(As you can see, my shoebox system is still in play.)
Doesn't Dottie look handsome?
Also, I baked this peach cobbler the other day. Super easy: four chopped large peaches, half a cup of sugar, a splash of sherry, and a nice cakey cobbler topping, 375-degree oven for forty-five minutes. I do not peel my peaches because I think they are better this way.
