Georgina Colour Dress

I liked this pattern very much from the first sight and the only colour I wanted to have was this saturated purple. Surprisingly quickly I found the matching fabric and despite summer is over yet decided not to postpone the sewing for the next season.
I changed almost nothing, only lengthened the dress for about 5 cm and cut the plackets differently from the magazine’s. I also top stitched all the reliefs and almost all edges. And I find my idea to make beaded buttons for the dress is nice:-)
I just love what I get and surely recommend the pattern to everybody.
My notes for the sewing are here.

    I read your theory about colors and found it very interesting! But the truth for you is much more simple: you are a lucky woman and every colors lookes perfect on you! I’ m very inspired by your beaded buttons! I’ m in jewllery making these days. I search for supplies on line as the local shops are very expensive! Any suggestion from you would be very helpful! Kisses!

      Thank you, Liliv… what you say about me is very flattering indeed:-)
      As for the beading, despite I live in a quite big city, the choice of seed beads, for example, is not very rich here. The most spread and popular is 10/0 Czech seed beads because many people love embroidery with it. So if I want something not typical, I buy online but in my country only and the choice I have online is not very wide as well. I can’t afford to order abroad because the delivery is expensive for me: as I don’t produce a lot of jewelry, I don’t need to buy a lot. As far as I know, many girls like to buy on E-bay or Ali-express. They have wide range of materials and not very expensive. Once I also came across “Czech beads” online magazine, their delivery seemed to be not very expensive but they don’t have the full choice of Preciosa. Preciosa itself has own net of stores so maybe it’s worth looking for what they offer in your country. As for simple stringing, I can find different kinds of beads here but they are expensive exactly like you say about your local stores. So I try to buy as many beads as I need for a certain project exactly… but it doesn’t help to avoid decreasing their sash:-)) I started from one shoes box and now have full three and one big form cosmetics and they occupy 1/4 of my sewing table:-)
