Can you guess why I'm rejoicing?! Yes, the zip, my biggest fear, is done and looks beautiful (even if I do say so myself!)....
The outside of the dress is now all sewn and is patiently waiting for the lining to be added. With a bit of luck - and hopefully a tired baby - that can happen shortly.
Many thanks to the lovely Claire for looking after the littlest one this morning so I could get this done. I feel much happier now.
