Please post a picture when you're done - bliauts are /beautiful/
You'll have to wait a bit. I'm hand embroidering the trim for both sleeves
and the neckline on the bliaut itself - I have the background split stitch done
on one sleeve and an working on the couching, and have just started the split
stitch on the other sleeve. Haven't gotten to the neckline yet.
I'll then need to make the undergown for it and do some simple embroidery on
the sleeves and neckline of that. I started the entire project last February
The bliaut itself is summerweight wool in hunter green, and the embroidery is
in shades of coral red, peacock blue, and a sort of old gold, with metallic
gold couching. The underdress will be yellow linen with the same colors of
embroidery (with a white linen chemise under that as well).
