The dress as it looked.
I had one piece of this lovely beaded detail which
would perfectly pair with the beaded crown.
Re-aligned the under-slip and added the
♡ Lovely Detailing. ♡
Then I cut off the bottom tier of the skirt.
And, added length to the under-skirt.
Next step was adding the (curtain) sheer skirt fabric.
This was very assymetrical and would become
a train at the back of the dress.
Now, for the fun part!
The tiny hand-cut fabric flower buds - each one
with bits of multi-color yarn strands.
Some of the detail work could be sewn
on by machine . . .
. . . but much of it would be hand-sewn.
A few views of the skirt and train:
This was a fantastic and fun project.
From concept to finish, it was totally enjoyable.
I describe this dress as "ethereal" -
Delicately lovely with a fairy-land mystique.
