    ok, just so people don’t go getting the wrong idea – most of the time with my beaded dresses i have no plan at the start (haha theres no way i’d ever be able to start something i’d know will take that long) they are on average 9 month projects that grow out of not much at all – like the corset dress i just wanted to see if i could put together a corset – then i found some lace – then i found some beads and by the occasion i planned on wearing it at came around a dress had happened. So it’s not so much patience as the fact that i dont ever have a clear picture of the end when i begin.

    You’ve done some lovely gowns! I can’t get over the beading- you must have the patience of a saint! It’s definitely worth all your effort, I can tell you are never in your life going to show up at a party and find someone else in the same dress, ever :o)

    Wow! The lace work and beading are amazing! I think it’s quite courageous to take on such a big project!
