Butterick 1983 4948 Belle France black plaid part I

The pink version of this hit a snag--the facings aren't behaving themselves and I think the fabric is one I overdyed, so I can't get more (I can't match the color).  I went to get some similar cotton to test the facings and found a pink I like better, so the old pink is going in the scrap bin until I can get back to the fabric shop.

So . . . marching on to the next fabric.

Black and gray plaid homespun:

This will have a bound neckline, long sleeves, shoulder darts, plain black buttons, and . . . probably tucks in the skirt.  I was thinking about a bias strip set into the skirt but I'm not really feeling it.
