Finished Elizabethan!



Well, wearable anyway. We all know garb is never truely finished. LOL So yesterday I finished the trim on the skirt, redid the point of the bodice and boning, and bound the top of the red sleeves. I still need to buy the red patterned fabric for a forepart. I'm not toally in love with the stuff I found at Joann's so I'll probably try Field's before I make a decision. Today I made the gold forepart, caul, and sleeves. I've opted not to do tabs on the bodice waist but may very well change my mind after wearing it. And that embroidered gold fabric is just crying out for some pearls, isn't it?
