Here we have an intelligent young woman with a gift for satire. A petite sandy haired girl with bright green eyes and a great deal of wit. Fluent in both French and English, Becky has a beautiful singing voice, plays the piano and shows great talent as an actress. She's also completely amoral and without conscience, seemingly without the ability to get attached to other people, and lies easily and intelligently to get her way.

A rather unlikely muse but still awfully inspiring in her unique way, Ms Becky Sharp was the creative catalyst behind this piece.

Upon the sexiest bed of Pinstriped Italian Dupioni Silk of Russet Brown upon Metallic Beige lies a centrepiece fashioned from Bollywood Brocade in shades of Teal with gold threads, peeking tantalisingly through a sheer veil of divine Antique Russian Lace. Accordion pleats feature on both sides, beautifully accented with the most glorious Antique Lame Trim. Such divine hues of Olivine, Ochre and Gold. This was taken from a 19th Century vestment, 1870s I believe.

Sitting sumptuously amidst a tattered scrap of pretty Indian Silk is a simply majestic Brooch from Germany featuring heaps of glittering Rhinestones, all decked out in its antique glory. Further frou frou appears in the form of opulent Pure Hand Rolled Silk ruffles (in Golden Ochre), these originate from a really rare Vera Neumann Scarf pre 1950s.

For even more dramatic contrast, there's a layer of Cotton netting (salvaged from an Antique French Edwardian piece)and another touch of pinstripe, this time from remnants of a period costume.

Lined with my signature Dupioni Silk, THACKERAY'S GREEN EYED BECKY measures approximately 4.5" tall by 6.25" across. She secures with adjustable Antique Buttons featuring metal Roses, this cuff can comfortably fit wrists sized from 5" all the way to about 7.25".

All fabrics and findings used in Sheela Goh Couture designs (unless indicated otherwise) are antique and over 100 years old. In fact, some bits are authentic Edwardian and Victorian. Seriously. So please, do wear her with care and respect.

OOAK.
Spot clean only.
Stitched entirely by hand, with needle and thread.
