Cutting the lining - no patterns to match so its OK to do this when I'm a bit tired after work. I'm at that point in the project where I have almost all the materials on hand and I can visualise each step in the process to get from here to finished. The visualisation is important - it's the difference between something being easy and being impossible. It's almost as if I'm trying techniques out in my head before I commit them to fabric and thread. It's also why I needed to get my hands on the boning before I was fully confident - I've never used it, or even seen it before, and I need to feel it in my hands before I can tell what it's going to do in real life.
This is also the stage where when I get going, if I'm not careful I'll forget to eat until I'm light-headed and making stupid mistakes. Oh yes, I know me.
