Absolutely beautiful. I always enjoy seeing your creations and reading about your sewing adventures. Make sure you post updates on your wedding gown.

Krystin, It's stunning as well as delicately lovely. I've seen this pattern lately with the sleeves as a wedding-dress cover-up. Perfect canvas for embellishment in both cases. Can't wait to see your wedding dress!

Exquisite embellishment. I'd say your beading skills are more than enough for your wedding dress.....and congratulations!

What an artful piece! This is really great! Canīt wait to see the making of your wedding gown. I made mine 1 year ago and enjoyed the process so much...

Beautiful beading! I've never tried it. Great idea to practice on a project like this before "the dress"!

Good idea to practice on a smaller piece - you are well on your way to some beautiful beading on your wedding gown. (Congratulations!)

Very beautiful - note that some of your photo links are broken - I did get to see the finished beadwork and it is stunning.

about the broken photo links - i'm debugging a database on my server. I don't know how long the problem will take to fix. Sorry.

That's a great interpretation of a great pattern. I think I need that one myself! And I can't wait to see your wedding gown.
