Let's try this again

Started laying out the tassels on the bodice. Hideous!!! And the trim is just too "gold" although there is no gold in the trim. So I need to tone down a bit. I have ordered a plain white trim and am losing the yellow in the tassels. While I'm waiting for the new trim and to get more tassel stuff I started on the bows. I had to make my own ribbon but I think it turned out fairly well. I used 2mm silk embroidery ribbon and stitched through the silk of the fabric. Here is a bow without the streamers.
I also cut out a new chemise and will sew on it this weekend at an event. I may be sewing on tassels on the airplane to the conference!
