Master of the Straights 1

The mission that Phedre is sent on involves heading off Alba (what we would consider England) and Eire (Ireland) to try to rustle up some help to defeat the Skaldic hordes.  She has to cross the English channel, where there is a magical being that has been marooned there for ages.  She and her companions stay there for a bit both on the way to Alba, and on the way back.  This dress is what she wears on the first visit, the next post is for the second visit.

The dress is described as being made of bronze satin with a neckline worked a handspan deep with seed pearls.  She wears a hairpin with a spray of pearls.

I had trouble producing bronze with my pencil crayons, and the scanner doesn’t reproduce colour exaclty, so please refer to the fabric swatch below the picture to see what colour I actually think it should be.

I included some accessories that I thought could have been brought up from the ocean deep.
