Italian Ren Gown Update

I'm not making as much progress as I should be, but I have conquered substantial steps toward the completion of my dress. So far I have:

-Addressed fit issues in the bodice
-Cartridge pleated the skirt
-Attached the skirt to the bodice and sewn down bodice lining
-Hemmed skirt
-Added hem guard made of unbleached cotton muslin
-Made God knows how many yards of piping
-Redesigned and finished lower sleeves
-Redesigned and began attaching upper sleeves
-Started eyelets (3/40)
-Started attaching pearls to the neckline trim

Yards of lovely piping made with yarn and my Singer Merritt 2404
