    I think the third one would be a good compromise, flat up to the shoulder with a hint of bunching toward the waist.

    Good call on the sash, I had not really noticed, but looking back at ghe photos it was a bit thick on the shoulder. at least you can work on it ag a nice, tidy bench - I remember having one of those, many years ago!!

    Hi everyone

    Bit of a Iffyvision update

    Belt nearly done ..., little bit of tidy up on the outer buckle , then add centre and lion and crown

    Once the sash is in place and I am happy then where the layers of paint have lifted I will need to fill in slightly .....then it will be a repaint of the tunic .....

    It's all going to be worth it !

    Happy benchtime
