made a start on the coat yesterday, looks a mess on this picture as its just draped over the mannequin. I have sewn it together and put some iron on interfacing in the upperparts to make it a little stiffer, next i need to add the even stiffer interfacing to the side panel and the shoulders, i also need to sen on the sleeve and then start adding the gold details

pink dress progress

after sewing the lining together i started to make the frame for the petals, it consists of 4 petals cut out of extra thick interfacing which is usually used for hats and some very stiff armatrure wire that is pushed into pockets in the petals
