Last minute extensive to-do list

Gah! I only have one day left! Hats may not happen. I'm getting really nervous...

I got home at about 5pm yesterday, and other than a break for dinner, I pretty much sewed until 10:30, when I forced myself to stop so that I could at least get about 6.5 hrs of sleep. I still have so much to do, though!

Still to do:
  • Stitch down 6" or so of net trim to FG evening bodice
  • Put 10 bars on the FG evening bodice closure
  • Make and attach the 3 bows that go on the back of the skirt. Actually, I have to cut out half the pieces for these, too.
  • Stitch together/attach the 2 bows that go on the front of the skirt, the 2 bows on the day bodice, and the 1 bow on the evening bodice
  • Bustle tapes for FG overskirt
  • Make a belt for FG including making 1 bow
  • Add decorative buttons to the front of the plaid skirt
  • Decorate a hat to wear with the plaid bustle outfit
  • Re-decorate my old candy bustle hat to wear with FG day bodice
  • If time, make two pink bows to put on shoe clips for Amelie pumps
  • If time, add a dust ruffle (purchased from aliexpress) to back of hem of FG skirt. 
  • Try everything on, do laundry, and pack!
I honestly don't think I'm going to be able to finish that all tonight, and I'm hoping to leave at about 10am tomorrow... At the very least, I need to do the closures, stitch together all the bows (I can always pin them in place if need be), add the bustle tapes for the FG skirt, and add the buttons to the plaid skirt. If I run out of time to do hats, I can always just go hatless, and I suppose I can go without the belt, too. And I guess if there's small hand-sewing things to do, I could do them Friday night once I get there. I just hate sewing at events.
