Peeking Over Jessica's Shoulder UPDATED

Jessica shows us how she executes a commission for needlepoint suspenders ("braces") for a German customer who wants traditional ones using Berlin woolwork patterns made with the breast piece.

UPDATE:  Jessica is almost ready to roll the embroidery up on her scroll frame.

And the embroidery is done!  Now for the finishing.

These aren't the first pair Jessica has made for customers.  Click on "Bavarian braces" in the right hand column to see more.  Here is someone wearing a set, although they are not Jessica's, just a random photo I found online to illustrate how they differ from the suspenders that a banker might wear in Boston.
