This is truly beautiful, and eye catching. I found myself just staring at it for about 20 minutes.  Grin
I do have a question, if you don't mind; how, exactly, did you get the texture for the front? was each feather pieced together? or was it more like a "quilting" technique to make the feather pattern on the outside?

well, anyway, it's absolutely stunning! great work!

It's a technique called 'cording' or 'Italian Quilting' where a cord is actually sewn inbetween two layers of fabric. There's no padding in it.  It is visible on both side of the garment, it's jut more apparent on the gray side. Here's a close-up to give you a better idea:

ooooooh! I see now! of course how silly of me not to think of that! I thought perhaps it looked like you used a cording foot on a sewing machine. It's absolutely LOVELY! thank you!

Wow! I would wear that in a heartbeat! I love the look of the wings, somehow they manage to look fragile and sturdy at the same time. The graduated colour inside is really beautiful! It reminds me of a butterfly actually. When they're not moving and are closed up they're often dull, but when they're flying then you see their intense colours.

Haha, yeah, same idea, except my sewing machine crapped out a few month ago--this is all hand work! I didn't even know there was a cording foot for a machine. I'm awful at controlling a machine for details anyway.

This is amazing!  I want to make one! So bad!  Is there any way I could see the wing layed out flat so I can see how it wraps?
