 Smiley Wow that dress is beautiful. You did a wonderful job, the stress of it all was well worth it.

You two look so sweet together.

Thank you all for your kind words and compliments - it was a very warm and lovely welcome to craftster for me Smiley

Is that emboidery or beading on the belt?

It is beading that was based on an embroidery design, kind of a viney flowery border pattern.  I printed out the design and resized it to fit the areas I wanted (the same design is used in a repeated pattern on the sleeves, neck, and back of the dress but it doesn't really show in the pictures), then transfered VERY LIGHTLY onto the dress with a water soluble fabric pen.  I then beaded the design onto the dress using silver-lined glass seed and bugle beads, 4mm clear bicone Swarovski crystals with AB finish, and Swarovski glass pearls.

And to everyone who commented on the time... It was VERY time consuming, partly becaue I didn't have a partner to help with fitting and tailoring and partly because as a self-taught seamstress it can be difficult to determine exactly how to make things happen the way you want them to.  Basically, it took a LOT of trial and error, especially with the lace-up back.  My muslin saved my life here, that's for sure!  Smiley

Thank you all again for your comments - I wasn't expecting such an overwhelmingly positive response for my first project posting, but it sure feels good!  Smiley
