I never tire of beading pictures. Thank you for sharing your work! I love this color.

I've seen this fabric in person and it's stunning!

That's fabulous beadwork!

"Fabulous" is something of an exaggeration! It's just rope edging...

LIES! That is very neat, dense, even rope edging.

No it's not!! I know how long it takes to do it fiddling with all the little beads so it is fabulous!

ditto! rope beading is difficult, it takes a couple of hours of beading before you get the tension/spacing/placement exactly right. Well done!!

*squeal* That is GORGEOUS! I had similar notions of something with just big flowers on it myself at one time and am all *dammit* anew that I didn't do it first.

This is going to be SUPERB.

Oh dear me, lower your expectations, please!

And you should totally do it (just don't attempt to do rope beading round the hem of the skirt, for that way madness lies). Everyone should have a floral costume! Ask Diva_C! Ask Mekyria!

*nods* My purple costume that is underway is definitely floral... but I think more floral can always be achieved! And I do love the look of just a few giant flowers.

And amusingly, this costume is kind of like a reverse of mine - mine is mostly about the same purple of your flowers, with some turquoise accents!
