I also used a very dark brown Anchor floss to backstitch the inner outline of the sleeves.
Should you want to work in your own colors, here is how to choose them.
Begin with the over dyed silk. Make sure it has at least three different color families in it.
For Family A, you will need a stranded silk, a Vineyard Silk Classic, a Fyre Werks Soft Sheen, #8 and #16 Braid (same color) and a blending filament or Accentuate to couch the #16 Braid.
For Family B, you will need a stranded silk, a Vineyard Silk Classic, a Fyre Werks Soft Sheen, a Mandarin floss to match as closely as you can to the canvas color and a #12 Braid.
For Family C, you will need 2 different values of a stranded silk, #12 and #16 Braid (same color) and a blending filament or an Accentuate to couch both braids.
The stitches for this project will follow over the course of the year. Section 1 will appear in February, Section 2 in March and so on.
