Ooh la la..

A little Mother's Day sachet for my cousin who is not my mother, but who is a wonderful mother. Reminds me of Mae West and
Lillian Russell.

I found some black lace for the trim at my local old-fashioned variety store. The scanner is not so good with 3-d images, so in case you can't see them, there are little red beads around the top and bottom of the bustier and gold beads down the front seam. The ribbon was to hide the uneven lace insertion on the upper left. I'll add some lavender filling and it's ready to go. The design is from the Feb., 2008 issue of Cross Stitcher magazine (UK).

Wow, that's fantastic! What did you use for the two sides? It looks multicolored!

I think that's just the scanner playing tricks on you. Just black lace trim.

I mean the sides of the corset (I think it's called)...... Looks very sexy. ;)

Paternnuts...The sides are done in DMC 317 with 816 or 817 (I forget which) back-stitched flowers on top. The color-variation you see must still be a scanner issue.

This is from the same issue you have that had the kit with the cats in the swing, so you can look up the chart.
