Inspired by the Dior video

Some one posted this on Facebook.  I had seen it before, but somehow I was mesmerized by it.

I decided to use some lycra mesh and add some already made fabric flowers to see what I could come up with.

I can't get over the painstaking individual cutting and stamping of each flower.  This gives you a whole new appreciation for the process.

I didn't have the fancy table so I had to improvise.  I used a piece of cardboard.  I cut the shapes I wanted.  Mounted the mesh and started arranging the flowers.

Here's a peek at the work in progress.  I want to also add beads to mine and "change it up" so it's not a direct copy of there's (not like I could -- make a copy-- the skills are amazing).

So, mine is similar "in spirit".

Here's the front panel with the flowers sewn on (but not yet beaded)

The one in the video looks like they used a very think cotton voile as the "base" of the dress....

I've run out of flowers and don't know if I can find more....
