Progress has been made on getting the appliques pieced. I have completed the first 1/2, and pieced & ironed down the second side. I’ve opted for doing 100% applique for the ermine dots rather than purchasing fabric. This is a mostly formal dress, the appliques will look nicer. The time line for completion has moved from River Wars to Coronation. As of today, I have not decided if this will double as armor.
