- hem the dress (I need a helper for this)
- Tack the fold of the dress down so it won't fold back
- Sew in hook and eyes for stomacher*
- Trim the dress
- Have someone else take some pictures. I'm getting tired of the silly/ugly mirror pictures, unworthy of the glory of this gown.
*I tried pinning the stomacher to the dress, and after stabbing myself repeatedly with the pins, and then still having the stomacher move and pull around, this is required. Kendra, of Demode, did this on her dress and it looks great.
