Transfer Pattern for Elizabeth's Pirates of the Caribbean Dress

This is a pattern I copied from one of my favourite period books, Eighteenth Century Embroidery Techniques. I plan to use it for beading the stomacher on the dress Elizabeth wore in Pirates of the Caribbean. I am using purple and black brocade for the over dress, and purple and black shot taffeta for the underskirt. The beads will be peacock blue and black seed beads, and hematite coloured bugle beads for outlining. The lace for the sleeves is a beautiful black sequinned lace I found at Gala Fabrics, my favourite fabric store.
