Finished the necklace! It went a lot faster than I thought it would. I gave myself ample space so it would hang a little lower than the collar. You can see in this photo it isn't super tight around her neck.


Using the wire was ideal for this and I loved how easy it was since I had gotten the technique down making the belt. Here are a few WIP shots I took while I made it.





I just need to add the clasp to the ends of the necklace to hold it closed and it's done as well! Super happy with how all of this is coming together so quickly.

Finished the necklace and most of the belt last night! I was foiled in the fact that I didn't realize I was out of pin backers(?) and couldn't finish the last of the gems. That will be remedied tonight though.



The belt is pretty heavy and doesn't stay in place well so I hand stitched it to the different points along the front to keep it where it needs to be.
Here is the belt before the stitching with the central gem.


Here is the gem attached to the belt/dress after the loops were made with the belt.


Now that the belt is actually "on" the dress, I can remove the wires holding it closed so that I can make the individual loops with all six strands. My extensions arrived and they look great! They are the same extensions I used for another costume of mine and they look very realistic!

As soon as I finish fixing the loops tonight, I am submitting. Very Happy

Thank you!

I purchased 6 yards of both fabrics for the gown. It wasn’t enough due to all the panels that needed to be added so an additional yard was needed. 7 total. I should add I’m 5’8” so if you’re shorter than that, you would prob be good with 5-6. Mr. Green

Finished everything tonight! I hand stitched each belt strand to the dress so that it would gather correctly and so you can see each individual piece. I also finally got the pin backing I needed and was able to attach the gemstones to the belt as well.
The picture honestly doesn’t do it justice. The beads and the gems catch the light beautifully and I couldn’t be more pleased with how it all looks.


I plan on taking submission pictures tomorrow after I do hair and makeup. Very Happy

I was asked to define the loops of the belt more and to bring the necklace closer to the collar and shorten it and then I was approved. Very Happy

For any of you looking to make this costume, I highly encourage it. It's beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it!
