This is the dress I already talked about. It was the first time I used satin and chiffon. I was expecting some difficulties sewing (satin is very slippery and chiffon is sooo thin), but had almost none. Although it would be nice to have an overlock machine for the hem. Anyway, it came out exactly as my sister wanted.
This was also my first time doing bead embroidery. My sister and her friend drew the design and I embroidered japanese delica and Swarovski crystal beads using "backstitch 2" from this book.
