A Purple Cloak

Two days of solid stitching later, I'm done the cloak.

Celtic Spring
32 ct White Lugana

I'm debating what to do about the gold. I'm keeping it for the cloak, but I'm not sure I like it for the dress. Since the dress is a paler purple it looks like the gold just fades in (from what I can see of the model and pictures online). So I'm thinking about using a purple metallic in the dress...decisions, decisions.

Any folks who've stitched her have anything to say?

I can't be of any help except to say the cloak is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the dress.

It is looking quite lovely....
Maybe at the far edge you could do a few stitches of the threads to see how they look next to each other then you will not have to rip out if you do not like it....that is what I have done.

I'm afraid I can't be of much help to you since I've never stitched this one. That purple is incredible though. Such a rich colour!

She looks beautiful, i think the gold thread will look good, but i guess you just have to see for yourself.

I've stitched her and the gold does look good but I like your idea of a purple metallic.
I'll try and get a decent pic of mine for you in the next few days it might help you decide
