Read Part 1 for the design process.
My muslin is now fit and I have marked all the corrections on my paper pattern. I also have turned back all of the seam allowances on the pattern, carefully placed the chiffon on my work table, which has a grid. Chiffon moves around a lot, as you all know, and the grid makes it easier to make sure the warp and weft of the fabric are straight. I made lots of white dots with a white dressmaker's pencil to mark out the pattern shapes onto the yardage WITHOUT THE SEAM ALLOWANCE. The beading should stop at the stitching line, not the cutting line. You don't need or want beads in the seam allowance. Then I stretch the yardage onto my beading loom.
Now the beading can commence.
