Roses are blood red.

I finished the roses from the 19th century silk.
Their end texture is like paper, and they are somewhat delicate, but they look so beautiful.

I tried out a Gothic type photo shoot with these. I mainly wanted to capture the translucency of the fabric, but I couldn't. They still look cool though.

Ive also cut out one of my project dresses for a cocktail party this Sunday. Only I decided to change the pattern. Im using my repro, but the yoke is cut from a rayon crape, yummy.

Im planning to overlock the pieces later today.
