This is finished....when you saw it last it wasn't lined and it wasn't stuffed with wadding which is there to ensure it holds it's shape until I make a decision on what to do with it. I tried to photograph it standing up, which it does easily because of the boned lower edge. Getting a good image of that is a completely different matter though.
It's 15 inches tall (38 cm) . It's lined with Broderie Anglaise onto which I have stitched strips of silk Habotai and metallic silk tissue. You can just about make that out in the last image.
There are two more pockets in progress here.....smaller, flatter, no boning. You will see those just as soon as I get my fingers in gear and stitch.
