So this May I bought a bunch of wool embroidery threads for about 50 cents a skein. I kinda thought I'd make a pocket out of it...

But why make a pocket when you can embroider an entire gown?

The gown is at LACMAhttp://collectionsonline.lacma.org/mwebcgi/mweb.exe?request=record;id=139731;type=101. The motifs are small and widely spaced apart, which means this is a pretty reasonable and not unachievable project! Yay!

So yeah... I'll be starting on this at Fair at New Boston this weekend. :]

Oooh! What a cool project; I can't wait to see how it comes out!

I like the back of that gown. Unusual...don't think I've seen a treatment quite like that before.
