Gown was inspired by a photo in a magazine. Designed by myself, it is the first time I attempted hand beading, which is on the bodice of this 2 piece gown.

Wow...you're really good. I think these are in a class far above "crafting".

You should sign up for Project Runway!

Thanx everybody! This girl wanted a Latin inspired dress that would really move when she danced. This was also my first attempt at beading; the bodice has beading at the neckline and scatter sequins throughout. Gowns are really fun to make,altho' they do require a lot of construction, definitly not for a beginner, although there are some simple gowns that are not that hard if you have some sewing skills and knowledge.
