Bluebird of happiness

Or.. Pad stitching! It makes me happy and it looks like a bird danced on the project.

I’m extra happy to be doing handwork!

And then the stitching begins! The wool was basted to the pink linen blend that I’m using as the internerling, then its pad stitched. The collar price is stitched through the wool, pink linen and the silk. This is because the collar silk would be all floppy and sag without being held to the rest of the layers. Both pieces of the front have been treated the same way, the right side is not pictured. Tiny doublets are fun! Who am I kidding, I love all doublets!
