1600's Brown Dress Refurbishing Project - Part 2

It is complete! I had to do the hand sewing while talking to friends this weekend, but I got the dress finished!Close up on the collar. Most of the lace is handstitched. That was the best way to get it to sit perfectly. Collars are not simple.
Close-up on the wrist details.
Back view. The collar is closed with a ribbon, to allow for necks of varying sizes.
Side View.
Costume #2 to be revealed shortly!
