Stone soup

22 Jan

I have rhinestones on my gown, on the floor, sticking to my clothes, probably in my hair and yes, I suspect it won’t be long before they show up in my food!  50 gross is a lot of rhinestones and although I don’t think they ALL have to go on this gown, I believe that at least 3/4 of them will end up there in the long run.

The only place with decent light to take pictures in at night is the kitchen.  I noticed right away that this gown coordinates nicely with the decorative cutting board hanging above the stove:-)

So far I have carefully hand sewn the float you see in this photo wrong TWICE!  I am learning to appreciate the strength  of good hand sewing as it is a royal pain to unpick

The floats will attach under the arm with a swim suit closure and perhaps a couple of clear snaps.

The skirts are really heavy and I woke up this morning rethinking the skirt because of this.  It certainly deserves some thought, horrifying though it is….

      Thanks Beth. It has been an interesting challenge. Not quite ready for prime time yet, but close to testing on the practice floor – maybe this week.
