early neck trim sketch a lot of notes, mostly on the stitches I used etc

armband incomplete but what is there is pretty accurate (ignore the notes this was before I hade simi-decent pics of the armband trim)

one of the most helpful pics of the neck trim (I boxed in the shapes so I could see them better and name the stitches)

the most helpful armband pic I once again boxed in the shapes so I could name the stitches

enhanced arm and neck trim nice to see what was going on there

up close neck can see stitches up close so can guess more accurately and can see whats going on between the rows of turkey work

enhanced pic of the neckline trim so you can see the shapes more clearly

the best to see the (what I think is) button hole stitch outlining the other stitches, and the lace under it all, along with great color. now I'm thinking instead of button hole I would say stem or some variation of such.

another very helpful pic

keep in mind I made my trim only with the the promo pics and such NOT the rotk pics. so sorry for the inconsitances between now and then.

I mostly followed my sketch and at the few inches where we can't see anything (under the straps) I guessed and made it work with the emb I could see at the shoulders, as for the back I repeated the pattern from front middle on ward all the way on the back with slight veriations. and also the arm bands are the same as the neck with some veriations and the shaped edges.

the arm band,

Free Image Hosting at

the side back of the neckline trim

Free Image Hosting at

the front neckline trim

Free Image Hosting at

it's made up of turkey work, chainstitch and overhand, and this was my first real emb project (aside from Elrond's costume) I have "lace" I made under all the emb, these pics are a tad old but it mostly looks the same as now, just the colors are a bit less bright.. (I lest the rit dye from the cotton bleed into the emb a little so as to age the trim (I'm thinking of beating it up a little so as to make it look less new) I'll try to post the old study of the trim here asap, it is lod but the info is still good (as with all reaserch) and it's in e-mail format so ignore anything that doesn't partain to the trim....
