Adapting the yoke to the creation and placing was the most difficult part of it. During the process, I had also purchased a beautiful Stockman Mannequin on EBay to ease up the yoke placement on the shoulders. The fabric was uncompromising in the sense that its fragility (or bad quality) didn’t allow me repeated stitch reaping. And then, I finally decided to stop the fussiness and to take some pictures because…
dang it, patience is a form of neurosis in the end and after all, I am not working for Coco ‘F*£$%^”g’ Chanel… yep I like the good English swearing …old style…:)
