Finished - Heraldic Surcoat
The heraldic surcoat is finished, washed, ironed, and delivered! Hooray! The wyvern is placed on the hip, so I had to pin in a fold for it to show in the picture. I didn't attend Crown Tournament this weekend, so I am hoping that friends got pictures of the surcoat in action.
The wyvern was quite tedious, but a very gratifying project. I've done a lot of machine applique and there is definitely a difference between the finished product of hand work and the machine work. The combination of applique and embroidery have a nice drape to them. I'm always amazed at how lovely linen looks after it's all pressed out and hung up. Yowza!
