The bolero and waist decoration are made from scraps of silk and fleece needlepunched in a 'soluble fabric sandwich', machine quilted with preprogrammed stitches and rinsed. The trousers are chiffon, needlepunched with wisps of fleece from the back to add a little bit of colour and lots of texture, and again machine quilted with preprogrammed stitches. Both sets of garments were embellished with sequins, beads and buttonhole stitch in multicoloured stranded cotton. The shoes were made from scraps left over from the trousers.

Here's a side view:

She is lovely and that is what one should do when the builders are in. I too have them in the house but I don't have a proper place to hide away but still if I can find a tiny space I create.
