Treasures of the Gypsy

The 2013 theme for Treasures of the Gypsy challenge is "The Masquerade Ball" which caught my eye because  several years ago I found a wonderful masquerade mask at Pier 1 Imports.

         It is doll size and I was sure there was a doll to be made to wear it.  Sure enough -        "The Masquerade Ball" challenge brought the opportunity.
I sent in my money and received a packet for Entry #52 with several fat quarters of shiny fabric - green, bold red and green brocade, gold sheer something, along with some trims of gold and green.    So ..... combined with things from Mom's stash-
This used to be a dress that either my sister or I made in high school!
The colors are so vivid and wonderful!
This is what I have so far.
She will be based on a pattern by Arley Berryhill called Madame and will be called "Incognito" because she will be attending the ball incognito behind the mask.
