PPoD - The Saga Continues...

Over the weekend, I finished 1/2 of the PPoD

Time to reposition!!!

Then start on the skeery birdie, who has now morphed into a Quail. I know quail are not period for Europe, but I care not! I laugh in the face of snarkers! I'm hoping that somewhere I can dig up a period picture of a quail. That would be so rad.

(I obviously still need to fill in her itty bitty beak.

TaDa! Done!!!

I wore the caul too high on my head - which may be why I felt like a lunchlady the entire day. I should have double-checked the portrait when I got dressed! Overall, I'm pretty happy with the dress. If I were to make it again, I would move the sleeve slit further forward on the shoulder, and cord the bodice for extra stiffening. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the end product. It's very, very comfortable!
