This project was maybe the longest of all – I started it two years ago and after enormous frustration I dumped the unfinished gown, as I thought that it would never look just right. Two weeks ago I saw the poor dress again and decided to give it another chance. After figuring the dress out in a completely different way it came up like this. The open back solution was decided without a long considerations, as the scissors happened to be a bit too close… :)
The message of this project is: never give up! Some projects just need a bit more time and patience.
