Probably the best thing about this particular garment is the buttons, which I bought ages ago at an antique shop in St Paul:

All that dressmaking made me quite hungry, so I went to the store and bought a whole lot of tomatoes and made a tomato cobbler:

Smells better than it tastes, too, actually. I’ll have to do some experimenting with the topping.

I thought yogurt and buttermilk were pretty much interchangeable…

And finally, how can I help but post these two pictures, taken while attempting to dressmake:
