Eleanora Dress - skirt update

This skirt is really heavy but another couple of hours worked on it and I think (and very much hope) that the large sections of black applique is all done. Lots of little fiddly bits left and lots of gold applique to do. At least the gold upholstery velvet doesn't fray as quickly as the black velveteen, so it should be a little easier to work with.

This really seems to be the never ending dress.

Eleanora dress - sleeves

Black applique finished on one set of sleeve panes. Just the gold applique to go and the sleeve will be ready for couching. However it appears I have not yet prepared   the second sleeve. Bugger, its either do some ironing to get the second sleeve ready or play with the skirt again....

Approximately 570 hours completed on this dress so far.
