After putting short stitch holding on her face and hair I couched some 2-1 twist onto the hair to give a bit of shape. It doesn't show up very much on the photo but it works well in real life. The two hair pins here were worked in flat silk, the third pin was worked in a light gold metallic.
Not much left to do now on this little piece, just some more couching on the obi, then the background which won't take long to do as it is just lines of held thread. The horizontal marks are where the temporary holding was, they will disappear with the steaming in the finishing process.
