||Cartouche! All the pieces laid out together|
Here's roughly how it goes together. The pectoral and the cartouche (the long oval) need to be beaded. The beadwork on the cartouche will spell "TUTBUCKS"
||Closer view of the cartouche piece|
For the curious, it's two layers of the pale blue calcutta with batting between them. The coffee-and-cream colored "linen" was machine appliqued onto the top layer of calcutta, then the three were machine stitched together and the edges bound with the same stone blue binding used throughout the costume

You can see the applique stitching on the "linen" look fabric, and the edge stitching that holds the back side of the binding in place
