So some days I just can't worry about "it's not period!"
When inspiration strikes, I have to go for it.
I wanted to test the snood from Simplicity 8735, a pseudo-Italian Ren. I was looking for something like a gold soutache, when I came across this in the stash.
It is a fine cord that has been shaped into rose-like segments. There is a finer green thread holding it together, and hinting at leaves for the roses.
Right now, it's pinned onto the pattern tissue. It doesn't look like it will be very large, but I think that it will be gorgeous. Period or not, I'm going to wear this!
