I've made the 7 skirt tab things and sewn lace, braid, and beads.
Now I'm ready for the last decoration. These flower petals.
There are 49 of them. 7 for the bodice, and 6 per skirt tab.
This is what they look like on half of the bodice. I think I may like the bodice better without them, but I can't decide. So the short story is I'm considering leaving the flower petal like things off the dress entirely but would love some more input. Any thoughts?
