A few years later and in another house I found the plumes for it... 40 wine and burgundy ostrich plumes!!..... but still no stones... in the box it stayed....
And now... in another house.... here it is, Pegee's Burgundy Dress pattern from Gone with the Wind... stones are on!!!
I hand set 144 ruby swarovski crystals in gold rims on this dress last week (my fingers were so sore!!!!) You can't see well in the pic but they are scattered all over the dress!
I now have the plumes all sewn on the shoulders and the bustle (we will take pics tomorrow!) ... but ran out before I got to the bottom!!! Crap! I will need atlest another 30 for just the bottom of this dress.... look at how long it is!!!
But I'm still going to wear it tomorrow night to a friends Halloween Party.... I also have 5 yds of wine colors tulle on the bustle and around the shoulders .... Just like pretty Scarlett O' Hara in the movie!!!
So basically... I'm declaring it done!!!! I feel like I've accomplished something here! lol!!!!
I better go...The trick or treaters are hitting the house!!!! Happy Halloween!!!!
