"Emily" - Wall Hanging

I finished Emily's wall hanging.  I decided to use the original photograph in this piece rather than printing the photograph onto fabric as I usually do.  The background fabric is a pale turquoise and gold printed vintage fabric.  The largest lace section is from the remnants of an antique dress.  I used additional antique lace, mother of pearl buttons and antique brocade ribbon.  The piece is attached to a vintage advertisement hanger for display.  The overall piece is about 16" x 29" at the widest points.

Oh, it's gorgeous! Emily was very demure and modest -- look how she tucked yet more lace into her neckline, along with that gorgeous collar. Sigh.
