countess_rosinaSo, I've finally gotten around to posting a picture of the petticoat that I finished ages ago. It's made from two widths of pre-quilted periwinkle dupioni silk, bound with a cream silk binding around the hem, tied with dutch linen tape. I'm nowhere near as petite and shapely as my dummy, so this picture is a bit deceitful, though the shape of the petticoat in this pic is really pretty! I did way more hand work on this than I generally like, which is why it took me so long to finish. I'm actually thinking about making a coordinating pair (set?) of jumps with the remaining quilted fabric - though a little voice in the back of my head is saying it may end up looking a little too puffy. We'll see if inspiration ever strikes. Hopefully the picture isn't too hard to see - it occurs to me that it's blue and white on more blue and white. Can you tell I have a thing for blue and white?
