I have officially started my most insane piece of sewing yet : beading the PillowfloweR. Mind you, I'm not going for a true 1920s entirely beaded look, I'm not masochistic enough for that yet.

But this is the result of tonight's sewing, which roughly equals two hours and a half. Yes this is the same flower, taken from two different angles so as to show the light shimmering in the beads. This is going to be looong.

As you can more or less see from the pictures, I'm using beads to make the pieces blend together at the seams. That will give me a lot of work on the center front, but giving the impression the dress is all one piece should be worth it. At least I hope so.

Sometimes I'm not entirely sure I like it. The HG, who's not much into giving compliments over my sewing, assures me it looks pretty darn good, though, so I'll keep beading. It will probably look a lot better once the whole dress is done.

The beading looks really great! You are definitely more than masochistic enough to take that on. It's going to look fabulous, especially when the light shines on it.

It actually does look better in person than in pictures already. It won't be extra-super-sparkly, more of a subbtler shine I think. Now I just need courage to do the rest of it... :)
