So the lining fabric wasn't in, but that's okay! There's just going to be a little back and forth-y for the next few days as I wrap up the Seventh Dress and plan the Eighth.

And now what about fabrics? Totally hipster plaid? I might do that. But I also have a black (read: originally black, currently overwashed navy) that needs to be replaced. So I want to add sewing black on black to the laundry list of details? I just don't know!
