beaded silk dress – the beading took way longer than I thought it would – and I actually had to do it twice because I had macine stitched the lines in gold thread first which ended up distorting the bodice, bah!!
the dress is actually in 2 layers: the top layer is made from a pink-red vintage silk organza sari brocaded with gold thread; underneath is magenta silk dupioni; the bodice is lined with bemberg.
I used the border of the sari around the hem edges of the pleated skirt sections
oh, and there are beads
Flirty dresses, a cropped cami, and glam trousers for modern flappers.
