WIP

Work has started on the next piece for the Extending Embellishment class.  For this, I've taken a large piece of silk and have begun working from the top.
Cotton tape has been added and stitched on, with bits of scrim lace trapped underneath. 

The tape is for gathering the silk, but that won't happen until all the embellishment has been completed.

I then made some cutout circles between the tape, backed with a sheer silk printed handkerchief.

Now there's more stitching to do at the top, and then on the bottom piece, but first, it needs a good damp stretching to see how it all looks.  Hopefully, I can work on it some more this afternoon.

Gorgeous! I love the gathered effect and the cut outs. Negative spaces are so appealing to the eye. Maybe that's why I love lace so much--a spot where negativity really adds a positive!
