What are you most proud of? Again learning new skills and utilising my sewing machine to its maximum. Also it went to St James Theatre in Wellington, New Zealand probably to be used as a prop. To me this means that the Victorian style I used was put to good use.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just use your imagination. Look in different books for inspiration and search the web for different machine embroidery designs.

Because the tulle is so light I made a petticoat to go underneath so that the embroidery and decorative stitches would stand out.
