This week I managed to add about 1,300 more rings to the bodice, focusing on shaping the sleeve on the right side and completing the bodice's sides. I also did some work on the neckline and back of the dress. The entire piece is taking shape, and I'm pleased with the progress to this point.
Happy Blog Day! I've been looking forward to this week's blog update because I have started work on the Cocktail Dress project! I received the first box of rings last Friday and started right away, though I haven't completed as much work as I would have liked. I have a super fun sinus infection, and it's challenging to focus on small rings when you're full of decongestant.
ve wanted to make a chainmaille cocktail dress for a while. A few years ago, a friend of mine shared a photo of an unbelievably beautiful Dior dress, and I've been thinking about doing a similar style ever since.
It's been another busy week here at Siouxsiequeue's, and between new photos, website updates, and the production list, I wasn't sure there would be a blog post this week. What changed my mind about the blog, a simple customer question..."What color is that?"
