This was the dress as of last Sunday the 8th.
The skirt is still in the same state of done-ness. The bodice now has 13 bones, all edges finished with hand eyelets for lacing on the center back and lace on the hem and neckline edges.
Today I started measuring and cutting out the sash. This will really add to the finished look - not to mention bring in more pink color. With so much white fabric, I feel like I've been working on a wedding gown!
The roses and leaves are the last thing to go on. The velvet leaves from Hats by Leko (see our Resources page) are a great moss green that will really make the dress "pop!"
Final photos of the dress will be posted after the Ball on Saturday! Stay tuned.
Thank you for all your comments regarding this current project! I've taken lots of pictures while sewing it to include in the upcoming eBook.
