I generally won’t reprise my designs but sometimes I can tweak the design just enough to create an echo of the original. Here is a version of my Sea Witch in a lighter palette and gold embellishment.
The skirt had lots of different blues and greens and to help them blend I deeply feathered them all. Lpoks like I missed a few points. I usually go back in with small scissors to trim them up as I sew the layers on.
I wanted to make the plate light but with a bit of interest so I included some tulle ellipses between the points.
Once the appliques were sewn on it was time to add rhinestones.
I added one of the plate motifs to the bodice applique to draw the overall embellishment together.
The little ellipses of glitter tulle were quite lovely I think. I’m also rather fond of elongated points on this inverted scallop plate.
And I think we have a very elegant Sea Princess.
