It is considerably cooler today; it was just starting to storm when I walked in the door. Phew! I got my corset on and a petticoat and tried the gown on. Took out a tiny bit from the chest and neck and the soldiered on! It has a collar and facing and neck binding too :) I got really enthusiastic and cut a yard off of what was left and made a TON of binding, and I ended up needing only a little lol. Oh well, I like bias tape, and I love this fabric.

Pondering button options (I know for a fact I don't have enough of the same type), a waist stay and how I want to tackle the hem. I definitely want a facing, and I should probably cut off the hem allowance before I put that on. How deep should it be? 4"? 6"? I think I should put it on before tacking the facing down too, so it doesn't show at the CF. For the buttons, I need to get those on before I can do the darts. Trimming aside, this is a very quick project!

Eta: here's my current button choices. They're all small, 1/2" or so, but i have lots. Opinions?
