The portrait doesn’t show her hem, so I made something up…today is bodice construction day! Five days to finish everything so I’m not sewing on the plane.
Um, like I usually do. Yes, it’s off to London! 😄

John Everett Millais, Portrait of Louise Jopling, 1879; National Portrait Gallery

(dodging lightning bolt) 😆
It’s a Sharpie kind of day…no going back! 😆
A pause before we walk to town. Old West dust is hard on skirt trains, so left it hanging in the parlor, sacrificed for fashion. 😎
