A closer shot to show some of the detail work! There's quilting accented by gold beads I hand sewed on the sleeves and panel in the front, the velvet hearts are satin stitched on. The gold trims accents were all pinned together and sewn on to frame those pieces. 2 kinds of lace inside the bell sleeves, the red pearl and lace trim on the gloves and bodice were white until I painted them. The right breast is quilted and red beads sewn into each quilt corner, the collar has 2 kinds of lightweight wire built in so it's shapeable and stands. The staff is a wood rod, the spirals are clay, and the heart on top was foam I carved and then covered in velvet. I pinned the hat on, but I think for the next time I wear it I am affixing it to a permanent clip to make it easier.
