Love the Rattail!

My gold rattail cord finally arrived! Good grief it only took forever. I hope the faux leather I’ve ordered for the suffragette outfit bag comes fairly quickly, it is all that I have left to finish this outfit.

I used the Bernina #31 pintuck foot with a simple zigzag stitch to couch the cord right off the edge of the sash.

I am very pleased with the end result! It makes the sash pop without being garish looking.

I also added a little bling to the hat.

And finally, a black and white version, faded, which is what the images from the past look like. I think I’ve pulled off a fairly realistic version.

      Thank you so much Mary Ann. I learned a ton, both about the history, and about the sewing, and have thoroughly enjoyed this.
