|The finished parasol.|
|The large canopy panels gave me lots of room|
to embellish, first with some simple embroidery.
|In the upper area I put four rows of tucks.|
|A small rosette covers the opening in the|
center of the canopy..
|Small touches make this modern frame|
look more period, like these rosettes
on the underside of the canopy.
|A full view of the underside.|
|Another finishing touch, a custom-made tassel|
by Lynn McMasters.
|This parasol uses a ring-and-button closure mechanism I've|
seen on extant parasols.
|And propped in a corner.|
