Interlined the bodice and stitched the sleeves

Hi everyone, I made up the new bodice with the pleated sleeves this week, the pattern instructions said to stitch the sleeve hems by machine but I thought it would be nice to hand stitch the hems of the sleeves instead.

At last - red dress in progress!

I have finally started stitching the red dress (Simplicity Pattern 2588) I told you about in my last post way back in June, better late than never!
I have not been sewing since making my blue dress, however, I get so many compliments  when I wear it I was inspired to get on with sewing the red dress for the summer.
