Pretty Lady

The overall plan is in place.... now to finish with embroidery.

I'm afraid I can't stop myself from inking things in when I think it will help the overall project. Her collar and bow will be outline embroidered and several colonial knots will add texture.
The elegant large hat will require a good amount of embellishment. First for the fishnet area in teal that would take 'forever' to hand embroider. I think machine stitching will work nicely by first placing a good stitch and tear stabilizer on the back side. That should save HOURS of work and likely look better/more interesting. We'll see!.

More to come.
