I just realized I could start counting in hours, rather than days.
95 hours (give or take 17 minutes).
For those of you laughing at my procrastination, the dress is once again whole and well.
I had it totally together on Friday and didn't like the way it fit, so I took it apart and reworked bits and pieces of it--shortened here, lengthened there, tucked here, etc.
The skirt and bodice are once again attached, and the majority of the tinkering is done.
I'm now off to sew a couple yards of hem tape and start blind-hemming. :)
