Here’s a photo of one complete side of the stole featured previously. Only two types of stitches are used: satin stitch and stem stitch. The embroidery is worked in soie d’alger on gold Italian silk.
The piece has not been steamed yet, so the wrinkles that are evident will be gone once I’m ready to assemble the whole thing. I used a scroll frame with the sides laced to supply tension.
You can see close ups of the various elements of the stole here.
