In the original painting she is extremely tall and thin, so this will help create that effect whilst still having her have natural proportions underneath. I wasn't going to show her feet at all when I started but got a bit carried away with the shoes, so now there will be a little peep hole where you can look under the hem and see them with some twinkly bits too on the underskirt as a little hidden suprise :0)

Made black underskirts, and now working on the backs of the dresses which will be their wasp bottoms! Doing 2 different techniques but still basically the same colour/shape. First one is using reverse applique which seemed like a good idea at the time, but has taken ages!! Embroidered round the openings and beaded here and there. Next one is a collage of mixed materials again embroidered and a few beads just up the middle line.

Started some other figures based on drawings of wasps...they're half human half wasp and their faces have turned out a bit more scarey than I originally imagined but I'm still quite happy with the way they are looking so far...they will have big skirts based on the lovely waspish pattern of course which I'm looking forward to making.
