In the meantime here's a couple of views of work in progress:

|Oh look, my nails match!|

Here's a quick view of the inside - a lovely bright green!
I cut my casings so the stripes were horizontal, just so they stood out and I've stitched them down with green thread. The closing is an open-ended zip (I didn't want to use a busk) and I've trimmed it with the green lace used on the skirt lining.
I'm delighted with the results! Photo's to follow. Perhaps I should just have an end of month fashion show?!
Now I'm working on this - and it's nearly finished!
