Forepart

I was very dedicated and finished pearling the forepart today. It still needs the trim at the bottom, but after that it'll be finished, and I can actually put the kirtle together. Whew! And then I get to do the same thing to the lower sleeves. OY.

I decided to use the sari trim on the bottom. The red's a bad match, but it'll be less work than heavily embellishing a whole 'nother strip of damask - and then I'd run out of pearls for the sleeves anyway, and we can't have that! I do have to do a little work on that trim - it's cut off a sari, and 98% of it's gold, but there are little itty-bitty spots of purple and green in the center of the motifs that I'm covering up with thin gold trim and spangles. Picture of that tomorrow.




And edited for clarification: They are not blue pearls. Just crap lighting.
