Victorian Lady No 1



 
 
The First of my Victorian Ladies is now stitched
 
 
I am using split stitch, split from above.
 
 
The thread is dark brown  Madeira Silk Floss.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
 
 
And Victorian Lady No 2 is printed ready to stitch.
 


I am delighted with the process of printing on fabric. 
 


Thinking of doing five ladies to include in a quilt.



I just love these clothes.  At least they are lovely to look at - I don't know how comfortable they would be to wear.

  2. Thanks Marina. My stitching is a bit wobbly these days. I am more comfortable with split stich than with back stitch for trying to get a smooth line. Sorry about th previous post. I managed to delete it accidentally and when I reloaded it i had lost the comments.
