The fit at the front was not too bad.
Here we are with the quilting done (not yet ironed) shown from the back and the front, ready to have the threads pulled between the boucle and lining and hand knotted. Yes, every blinking thread. Yes, it took hours. The organza stabiliser is also visible here, as are my sticky labels identifying each piece.
Hooray, we're finally ready to sew something together.
Oh, and just quietly, to the diehard readers who made it this far, that 70+ hours....I think it's an underestimate!
