Dressing a King

 I am making good progress on the lid for my Padded Mirror Case.  I have completed all the flatwork and the stumpwork elements of both the King & Queen's trees, and am now well into the figures themselves. I finished up King's shoes this morning and had to share a little picture with you~ I love how they came out!  King is quadrupley more involved costume wise than the Queen~ he has so many layers to his wardrobe!  The ermine lining to his robe had to be completed first before I could start his legs with hose and shoes. He has breeches, an apron, doublett, robe, collar and falling band all to do  before I can even give him hair poor fellow...I don't think he minds that as much now tho, being as blazing hot as its been here lately~ I bet those wigs got rather hot in the summers......
