Gold and Red Countess by CountessLenore Gold and Red Countess by CountessLenore
Despite what everyone (including myself) believed, I finished my court gown!!! Praise me!!!!

Details, let's see....the bodice and overskirt are made from upholstery brocade, the forepart is tapestry and the oversleeves are silk dupioni. The bodice is fully boned, the overskirt has over 800 beads sewn by hand, plus it's cartidge pleated, and the sleeves are 24 pieces each, trimmed with gold beads.

Oh yes, bodice jewelry was made by Pam. Thank you!!!

Beautiful! I often wonder how they kept those long huge skirts clean from dragging along in the filthy streets? Ive been making huge flared jeans lately if you want to have a look in my gallery?

Wow! That is so magnificent. You did a really good job, and you finished on time! It's amazing. And hand-sewing all those pearls must have been a pain. xD

I love this! You're so talented.
