Simplicity 4727 (1943) part IV: Incremental progress

Listening: Cowboy Junkies mix again ("Murder, Tonight, in the Trailer Park").  It was Son Volt in the car on the way in this morning; it seems that my mood hasn't changed much from yesterday.

I had to go to the store for milk last night but then I started installing the button placket in the back of the skirt.  I think I can get the handwork done on that and maybe on that second pocket today at lunch.  That leaves gathering the skirt into the inset belt, attaching the belt lining, and finishing up all that stuff, and then buttons and buttonholes.  I'm off the next three days and the house isn't a complete disaster so I should be OK.  

Then I have to get the Advance 4858 blouse done!  We leave for Missouri next week.
