I finally have all of the materials together and have started sewing.  Progress is somewhat slow; but much, much faster than affixing crystals one at a time, as with my previous projects.  Here is a picture of the gorgeous trim I ordered:

I love the blue/green of the feathers!  I can’t wait to see it finished!  Here’s my progress so far:

I have sewn three rows overall, with about six or seven over the bust.  So far i’ve only used about a yard and a half of trim, so hopefully I won’t have to order more.

More updates to come!
