Another sewing post

I've finished all the beading on the belt, having added the bead drops.



I've finished adding the crystals to the bra, and I've got almost all the way through adding the bead drops there, X marks the spot of the very last of these bead drops, to be added when I receive those fire-polished beads that I ordered. There will also be a longer set of central bead drops.



So now that I can't do any more on these main bits for now, I should be working on the mandeel and arm-bands tonight. But we'll see. The pub across the road is sounding very inviting.

Lovely- so pretty and the stones really 'pop' in their settings.

Thanks everybody! I know the bra looks slightly lopsided, but that's more because I didn't adjust my breasts before photographing. In real life it's not as wonky.

This is stunning.. worth the wait for those drops.

oh, and what bra did you use for a base? It's stupendous.

It was a standard t-shirt bra from M&S, nothing special. Because it's got the foam layer for t-shirt smoothness, it gives a bit of stiffness as well as providing a smooth base to work with.
