Victorian petticoat waiting for waistband and hem -Robin

Pleated the waistband and pinned/pressed the hem.  I'm leaving it for now until we have our sewing fest in late August to make sure the length is ok (and hoping I can lose some of these pounds I've packed on in the last 3 months!) i used the pattern for the bottom of the skirt that I'll be making for my Vic outfit, except i gathered the bottom instead of artfully pleating it in corners.  You'll see how the real one turns out later, but this was good practice. I also practiced French seams and boy, was I rusty! Note to self:  white on white is really hard to see.  Do I detect a pattern here?
Everything takes longer to do in reality than it does in my mind.  Oh, well...
