Now it's placed as bad as possible; right at eye level on the tunic's front piece. How clever is that!
So I had to come up with something to cover it up, and thought that an old Danish china pattern would be great inspiration.
My version is drawn in freehand so it's not completely like the Mega Mussel pattern, but never mind.
I'm quite pleased with the interaction between the pastel coloured linen and the strong orange embroidery floss - it did concern me a bit when I started out the embroidery. But somehow the orange keeps it all from becoming too fastidious to look at.
I hope to get the tunic done, so I can wear it when we go to Anne-Sophie's graduation in about 1½ weeks.
