I got the beading done on the outside edges of the skirt. It took about four hours total, but it was worth it. It is going to look spectacular, plus it gives the edges some weight. That way they will fall properly and not get blown around in the breeze.
I have to get more purple thread and then I can start on the bodice. I started the design phase today. I do have a few things to figure out, like how to cap the shoulders. Do I use rolled shoulder style or epaulet style? How do I want to attach the Stomacher?
These and more will be answered soon.
