Alright, now is the time to stand back and behold all of the hard work you have done! This might take a while to complete all of the necessary steps, yet the finished product is a breathtaking pattern of scales which you could make out of any lightweight fabric you choose.
As for what to use this for, please keep in mind that it is very difficult to match the scales up in seams and such, so try to cut down the amount of times you need to cut this stuff up. When using this in skirts I have gotten very close to matching, yet there always seems to be a straggler scale or two that don't quite fit. My solution to this is gathering near the seam, so that you cannot tell which does not match, or only has half of one scale showing.
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
