Miss Monet makes a dramatic entrance

The exquisite Miss Monet corset and skirt created by Karen Frost was modelled at the Fashion Show at the International Festival Of Quilts at the NEC in Birmingham this week.

Made from recycled calico coffin covers which have been silk painted, appliqued, embellished with smocking, sheers, buttons, beads, and well as being machine quilted and hand embroidered.
Karen's first ever attempt at smocking!  Bodice detail.
Congratulations to Karen on being invited to take part in this prestigious event and she will be back in her sewing room soon as she has been invited back for 2017!
