I started the patterning from one of the vintage patterns that I have been collecting for years. A little evening gown number that was a Hollywood pattern from 1937-ish. Don't worry about the size 20 on the pattern, that is a size 12 now-a-days. I sized the basic down to my size in muslin, and then started to apply my specify design lines.
From Andrea ... Stay tuned ... beading on Monday.
