Snow White completed

24 hours and we went from fabric to finished. Dress was constructed of silk, lined with linen. Special thanks to everyone who worked on this with me Amy (mid), Holly (mid), Eleanor (Calontir), and Patresha (mid). This is our interpretation of what Snow White would have actually worn.

Kleid (dress)
Gollar (dickie)
Goldhaube (hat)
Belt
Hose
Stock (underdress/skirt)
Hemd
Churz (apron)
Tallerbaret

We started with silk from my business trip to Thailand. We had the option of doing wool, but thought the silk would be richer in color/sheen. We ended up using gold, blue, crimson and white. We had the option to go with brighter, crayola color pallet, but chose jewel tones.

Collar and protege belt. The crescent is the EK order for service, the bear is my protege mark.
