Winter gear isn't something I have occasion to tackle very often, since a lot of events I've gone to in the past have been at the height of summer. When you need it, though, you really need it!

I had actually forgotten about this in-progress petticoat for a while, but I unearthed it while moving my fabric from my sewing room closet to the guest room for storage. The wool flannel fabric is very similar in weave and texture to an original that I have owned in the past, though somewhat thicker.

Since I don't know what the weather in Gettysburg will be like in November, I'm planning for chilly temps. It's better to have more and not need it, than to freeze your tail off and be miserable all day! Anyway, this flannel petticoat will keep my legs nice and toasty under my hoop if it's cold out.

So, while it's not actually finished yet, I am well on my way to finishing it for November. And once you start working on it again, it's "in progress" rather than "unfinished." Right?
