I hope that when I recreate a costume that I have done the original justice and the 'Eva' gown is one of these that I truly hope I have.
Finishing the last on the panels today for the skirt. It has been full on chain stitch embroidery, appliqués, sequins and a little bit of bling to get it looking a little like the Hell On Wheels version.
It's actually a shame now to have to gather these panels to the skirt, but it has to be done.
Want to know how much embroidery has gone into this skirt?
This even stunned me yesterday – 296m/321.9yds of embroidery floss!
You heard me right and I haven't even started on the bodice yet which thankfully won't be as much work BUT is going to be stunning and I can't wait to see it finished, proper accoutrements gathered and worn by the lovely Belle Vaquera at a costume contest!
Love, love, love it!
