All of the garments here are actually works-in-progress. They all have
finished yokes and sleeve cuffs. However, I still intend to do lower embroidered
hems for them.
It took over sixty hours to embroider the yoke of this garment. I do
not know how long the cuffs took.
These shoes feature a laid stitch upon a leather surface. To achieve
this I invented my own technique. I simply made a hole with an awl, allowing
me to insert a threaded needle through the leather. The primary stitch
is the Bayeux Tapestry laid stitch. These shoes, accompanied by the grey
dalmatic, were selected by HRM Aislinn as the Queen's Choice at the last
Queen's Prize Tournament.
