So, this is happening...



It may take years, but hey, gotta start sometime! It's one of my favorite gowns and I thought, hey, why the hell not?!

    1. I'll keep posting as I go. If I have to share, I'll be accountable and have to make progress :)

  2. Yeah! How delightful! I love such projects and it will be amazing to follow the progress over the months and maybe years.
    With all the shiny silver thread the re-creation must turn out spectacular.

  3. Is that metal tinsel? May I ask where you got it?!

    1. Yes it is! I bought some in the past from Berlin Embroidery. That is what's in the picture. I just received some from India that I have yet to test out, but was far less expensive. I need a lot of it for this! I ordered that from Easy. The shop was called EmbroideryMaterial.

    2. Thanks for the tip! I have been buying random spools on ebay but it's good to find somewhere I can buy in larger quantities. Good luck with the embroidering :)
