Dear Self, it's a skirt, not a corset, quit being so darn exacting about it. - Melodramatic, corsetted mistress of the obscure

Dear Self, it's a skirt, not a corset, quit being so darn exacting about it.
The petticoat is done (but for a ruffle I haven't made up my mind about).

The skirt is about 50% done. All cut out, anyway, and the side-to-back mostly done.

I found out the iron-in interfacing I was trying to use SHRUNK even when I followed the directions exactly. Luckily, it was only a small piece and I have extra fabric. No more interfacing for this skirt. The fabric is pretty stiff, I think it will be okay.

Now, I just gotta keep my mind on what I am doing right now rather than fretting about what else needs to be done, that I am not sure I can do. Fretting does not get stuff done - therefore, fretting must not be done.

The fabric? Hello?

And fretting is for guitarists. You will look magnificent, as always. Looking forward to seeing you again this weekend

Yes indeed. The fabric. I was TOTALLY talking about the fabric. Yep.

I am quite sure the skirt will be fabulous. It's the rest I am trying not to fret about.

It will be good to see you, too.

You do one thing. You do it well. Then you move on to the next. It will look great. A link to photos afterwards, please?

I can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel for mine. Let me know if I can help with yours.
