This was such a fun pillow to make, I tried to think what colors would be in Marie,s boudoir, I thought gold, in her portraits she was often in blue, and every girlie girl loves pink, lace, feathers and flowers. So that's how it began. I had no finished vision or actual object to go by so I tried to make a woman with a beautiful multi layered gown with lost of lace, ribbon and details.

I am so in love with this mirror, I can't even believe I actually made it. It is constructed on a vintage mirror and would be so lovely on a fancy vanity. The colors just came together so well, and the free hand silk ribbon embroidery turned out way better than I thought it was going to. I used things from my stash to make this charmer, using vintage where I could. One thing I learned was how to use the rufflier on my sewing machine, my sewing machine scares me because it can do so much and I am not good with computers. But I figured out the rufflier and have been ruffling every thing from cloth, ribbon, to crepe paper, it works great.
