Green Gown Update

I’ve been couching the gold like mad, stopping only to make more gold cord.  The vertical stripes are all done, and I’ve started on the panels.  I also need to add the small chevrons inside the vertical bands in the lower portion of the doublet and at the shoulders.

I’m debating doing the full hanging sleeves, or just shoulder wings. I think I will wait and see how long the embroidery takes me, to see if I have time to do the large sleeves.
