First, I used medium brown for her tiny eyebrows in outline stitch.  Then a darker brown for her eyelashes in straight stitches.  Two tiny stitches of Kreinik made her green eyes sparkle and some bright Soie D Alger and three little stitches filled in her lips.  Her face is left unstitched!  Surprise!
Then, I twisted two strands of Soie D Alger for the twisted cord that is couched down along the outside edges of her coat.  On the sleeves there is a piece of lace in the kit that was to be sewn in place, but you know me......always have to change I added petite beads along the edge instead.  Think about it....she is loaded and got this coat in Paris and it would have crystal beads, right?

Yes, but the lace is rare antique Belgian lace.

She looks fabulous, whether she has diamonds along her sleeves or lace. Personally, I'm a diamonds gal but either look would work for this beauty. She must be very very close to being finished. I love her eyes, by the way, and the cherry red mouth. She's a looker and the whole piece is fabulous.
