And Another One!
In my experience solid black will show as many marks as plain white, but usually a small irregular pattern is pretty good at hiding little marks. I had a this black and white patterned fabric in my stash. I also had some cotton batting and found in surprisingly easy to quilt the bodice.
I wasn't too keen on the idea of hoiking the bodice up around the neck as it is semi fitted so not only would she have to hoik her bust up as well, but the waistband would be up around her midriff. So... another little bit of fabric and a little more quilting... et voila! A small quilted, detatchable neck bib which only need be worn when frying and then taken off to greet guests and serve supper!
