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!!

I used the border of the sari around the hem edges of the pleated skirt sections
oh, and there are beads
