More on the Wedding Dress

So some of you know that my daughter EM is getting married in only 3 more weeks (That makes me a little nervous.), well I have been working on the Wedding Dress for about a month and a half. Remember the Corset!

I just wanted to show that I am making allot of progress. In fact the dress is almost done I am just doing my favorite the embellishing.

This is what I have been doing. I am couching silk ribbon onto the front of the bodice. The dress is made of dupioni silk which has a very subtle sheen.

I first laid ½ inch ribbon on the cross hatching I did and am now stitching it down with silk embroidery thread.

I then took 2 stitches where the ribbon crosses.

You pull it up tight.

Then take 2 stiches the other way forming a cross.

Then on to the next point. I ran the thread between the front and the lining.
This is what I got done in about 6 hours. Not to much left to do right. Oh I still have beads to put on it. I'll show more latter.
