The BIG Project: Done!


I replaced the missing beads last night while watching TV. Unfortunately, the pictures don't really pick up the shimmer of the beads. Harder to take pictures of a cream garment than you'd think. I took these two this morning without flash.


And here's a shot of the shoes I picked to go with the dress.

I also finished up the hem and side slit of Vogue 8241, aka "Hearts Fluttering in Vogue." As you may recall, that project was my original concept for the wedding ensemble that didn't quite work out. However, it's still a nice dress so I'm taking it to Kauai for the honeymoon.

Beautiful! Classy with clean lines. The bead work gives it that special occasion feel. And it is - so, perfect. You will look lovely. :)

This is lovely. What an original idea to use the HAF and a skirt for a wedding. It's very elegant. Beautiful.
