......and still couching

The couching is progressing, there are only 28 gold motifs left to do on the skirt, and then its on to the gold couching. Incredibly time consuming but slowly progressing towards finishing the skirt.

Lots of projects running along side this one, (photos to come soon) including an elegant evening gown for an awards dinner, a goth Lolita costume ( with aspects of roccoco  and bustle dress in there too) an elizabethan outfit for a friend, teaching basic tunic dress construction to a few people...and the list goes on.

Hopefully my next post will be a celebration of completing the black on gold couching, but till then, enjoy a pic of my elizabethan hat worn with the superbly divine caul made by the supremely talented Laura at
