- sleeves have been lengthened with a long, diamond-shaped gore in the long seam under the sleeve (they were too short before; I added about thirteen inches of both length and width)
- seams finished and flat-felled where they'll show (sleeves, lower hem)
- trim applied to the upper arms and sleeve hem.
I also split and hemmed the side seams in the body so that I can lace the sides; I'm honestly not sure if I want to mess with it (hand-stitched eyelet holes...blergh...), so after I did that, I sewed the sides back up again. Means I can wear it right now, and if I decide in the future to do the side-lacing, I only have one seam to undo and no prep-work on the edges, just the eyelets themselves.
Next: neckline trim & lower hem.
