Costume progress

Today, between yard work and working on getting things more straightened and organized around the house, I worked on the Vest Basque jacket/bodice. I have the main part of the bodice sewn together, boned, and ironed out. I just have to do the sleeves and attach them, see the lining in and then make and attach the buttons. I re-taught myself how to make buttonholes today (my pal, Noelle had shown me when we worked on the polonaise, but she put them in, so this was my first real attempt on my own), and then put 11 of them in! They aren't perfect, but they are totally good enough for government work. Here's a picture of them as I was making them:
