Bear Couture

Lady Teah has been named (thank you everyone) and her dress is well on the way to being finished.  It wasn't easy:  the fabric is more fragile than I thought it would be and easily runs so I had to scratch my first design and try something different. It's more a classical faerytale gown now, still elegant.  Here it is in progress:
There's still work to be done, obviously, but you get a feel for it. And yes, I remove the bear's wig while working on the dress to best preserve it. 

And this is the tattoo on her back.  It's kinda hard to see in this photo, but the tattoo is a pair of stylized dragon wings in various shades of green embroidery floss with bead accents.
