For this dress I took two others apart. The golden embroidery was on a dress I found on a flea market. The dress was too tiny for me but the embroidery was so nice and gives this costume a special touch. And bright red is always good in the nice sunlight. This is the first costume I made for my husband. The brocade is from a market in Tunis, Tunisia. His stockings… are from hospital… but opaque so you don’t see his hairy legs.
