Work in Progress Wednesday - 28 May 2014

I've been filling in many of the 'gaps' on the skirt section over the past few days and here are the results, showing one element at a time.



Here's a shot across the work showing the texture more clearly.  This was one very rich brocade that was being represented here!


She looks like this at the moment all together.  Not too much further to go now and I've decided to go with the gold beads I already own for the dress trims and then source some matching 'sets' for the dangling jewel parts.  Not only do I want to get on with it, but I think that will work well and there's nothing wrong with having them very slightly different, esp. as that will make it more clear that the skirts and trims are separate parts.


You'll be able to see the other participants' Work in Progress Wednesday posting over on Pintangle.

She's looking stunning that brocade looks very sumptuous with all that texture.
I haven't done any this week as we are just back from holiday and I didn't take it with me

Beautiful details! Isn't it amazing that they wore all that back then?

Great progress. The 'cheesy' look is totally gone and the front part of the skirt is really beautiful.
