A few fixes needing doing- one off the shoulder pads can off so needs sewing back on. Some of the edging on the trousers also needs re-sewing.

Ole Ole. Viva España. Donde esta to torro? I can't say I know Hetalia but you've certainly captured the flair of the matador. I'm so impressed by your patience with adding the details by hand.

Jacket modifications (Posted 13th December 2011)

Been gradually sewing the diamond design on to the front of the jacket by hand and edging it with gold trim. Still to do are the ridiculous shoulder pads, which I'm planning to make with card and wire and cover with fabric then edged with gold fringe.

Progress (Posted 6th December 2011)

Sewn together the vest top, so moving him over to in progress.
