Jane Seymour's overdress is now finished and, like her underskirt, is a pretty close color match to the Holbein portrait.
This area was worked in a diagonal cashmere stitch with three plies of DMC floss #729. While worked on the diagonal, this stitch isn't that directional--as your eye travels, you can see the little rectangles marching up from bottom left to top right as well as in the opposite direction,
Jane's just about finished, A.B.T.B.--All But The Beads. Since I'm beadaphobic, it may be a while before the trim on her English gabled hood and jewelry are added. Until I'm in the mood, there's another wife awaiting my attention!
