Simplicity 4718 (1943) brown dress Part V

OMG, it's freezing in here.  I was just thinking I should put my jacket on . . . oh, wait--I already have my jacket on!

I went home last night and did the buttonholes (sewing, at least, but I haven't cut them yet) and hem on 4718, and topstitched the inset belt.  I forgot about shoulder pads; those don't take long but I want to put them in after I re-dye it, if I decide to re-dye it, so they don't bleed dye forever.  I'm really over this dress but I need it to wear.  Then on to St. Patrick's Day.
