Ivory Angel - Starting the skirt

Stitching Ivory Angel isn't difficult, but determining where one area ends and another begins is sometimes a bit tricky.  To simplify things a little, I started work on the skirt by outlining the trim of the robe with Vineyard Silk Classic Natural and filling in the trim with VSC Edwardian Gold.

The main section of the angel's robe on the right was completed in basketweave with VSC Natural and shaded with Evening Haze.

Moving to the dress under the robe, I used Silk Lame Braid for 18 ct. in Ecru, shaded by another Silk Lame Braid in a value of gold slightly deeper than the VSC Edwardian Gold.

Since the angel's skirt accounts for at least one-third of the stocking's length, this is going to take a while!

I like how the combination of fibers you have selected for the skirt blend together.
