The Prom Dress is under construction, having spent yesterday getting all the fabrics cut out. The embellished lace proceeded to kick my butt, as I tried to perfect the placement of the pattern pieces on the beads and sequins. Here? There? There! Then I hand-basted the satin pieces beneath the lace, so I could then treat them as one. Throughout cutting of the lace and then pleating of those pieces, I had to either dodge the beads and sequins, or remove them, then stitching any remaining beads/sequins, anchoring them to stay put! Little by little, step by step... as my principal said last week, "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!" So, here I am this morning with the worst part of the project behind me, and a great feeling of accomplishment. Also, a nagging feeling of "Is it PERFECT?"
