The Peacock Gown
I have a gorgeous green false silk fabric for the main part of the gown, and a 100% real silk cream coloured sheer fabric for the partlet, and bits of the sleeves. I also have a copper coloured false silk for the sleeves and forepart and stomacher, and I am going to be adding embroidery in green, olive, gold, copper, cream and royal blue, as well as beading in the same colours. I have several designs in the works, here is the first one, The partlet is sheer cream silk with embroidery and beading, the stomacher and forepart embroidered and beaded, I think I'm going to rework the sleeves somehow...
