Well I did a charcoal base in heavy canvas type cotton with turquoise frills (but straight) going out from the middle, and a damast type turquoise fabric with gold and silver threads for the center lines and the bow (the bow is made by hand.. they looked at me like I was crazy..).. the middle frills are with hidden seams.. the only problem was that all the details took so much time.. otherwise the frills would have cover the whole sides.. but anyway.. except some small misshaps I'm ok with it and I would REALLY like to get the job! The whole feeling of the store is great, calm and filled with fantastic stuff :) How fun wouldn't it be to work with my hobby but another part of it?!
Anyway.. back to the project I think I've decided on.. I really do LOVE Pinterest (let me know if you need an invite) and a few days ago I came across a paining of Queen Anne of Bavaria and Hungary från 1519 (by Hans Maler) and I really want to make it :)

According to Annika I need to find me som flat golden spangles (yes I learnt a NEW word) for all the trimmings.. but look at that HAT(!) with beading like she's supporting the cancer society :)
