What was your inspiration?
Needed a fancy dress for a black tie wedding- this class came up just in time!!
What are you most proud of?
Finally have the confidence to just go ahead and change things about a pattern that aren't working for me. I love how this dress really fits. The beading was fun- found a book by Kenneth King at the bead shop with lots of good ideas for bead embellishment.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Enjoy the process- it's not a "dress in a day" project at all, but so worth the effort.
