What are you most proud of? The way it all came together. She looked beautiful and she was so proud to be wearing it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't start a project unless yyou have several months to give to the creation. I have about 450 hours in the beading alone. All together it took me over a year to source the materials , do the trial and error designing in muslin for the beadig and the dress and to make it. It was pure joy.
