and it is FINALLY finished!!!! PHEW!!! lol
This peacock blue dupion silk bishop features 83 bullion roses/rosebuds trailing down the neckline and on the sleeves. I really am a glutton for punishment, aren't I? lol I believe I made .73 cents a hour on this one! :o) I think it will make lovely portraits though! Here is a closeup photo of the bodice.
I improvised the smocking design from Babycakes in AS&E 64. I changed it up to fit my color scheme,size,etc. I am pleased with the results and I hope my customer is too.
