More from the bottom of the dress front. This is two different sizes of beads couched down to form a double heart.
A tatted section with real pearls sewn down after the tatting was applied.
The back view. There is a lot of tatting on the train, which I will show another time.
The cuffs. The sleeves and upper bodice are net. I added a tatted edging and cut away the net to match the shape.
Above the net upper bodice, there is a neat silk collar. The bottom edging is a tatted chain pattern worked with lots of beads so it looks more like a solid piece of beading than a piece of tatting. The 'flowers' are pearls and beads.
More next time!
