Ballgown: Day 23 (Or, Everything is Coming Up Appliqué)

Yesterday was another long day of appliquéing, but on the bright side, I have a whole front skirt panel constructed and the last of the really difficult handwork is done! I measured and pinned and basted for hours before finally getting down to hand-sewing, and I think it really paid off. Because I'm a sucker for things matching correctly, I planned the waist seam to meet across two mirrored edging pieces to create a little sunburst design - it's a small detail, but I love how it connects the two lace sections to each other.

And today, I start putting the whole shebang together. Hooray, hooray!

Happy Saturday!

Cory -- It looks beautiful and it is so "you" -- I cannot wait to see the finished gown.
