What are you most proud of? Centered the embroidery and matched up the border. Fits well. First dress using my homemade dress form.

Beautiful work of art! Where did you get the pia cloth? I can't find a source online.

I changed picture. Dress underneath is not thrifted. It is Vogue 8766. Pina fabric was from the Philippines. I haven't found source online.

How beautiful. I love how original it is and how the top fabric shows the careful finish.
