This sounds fantastic! One of our girls is into dys gemming of her dresses so this would be the next step. Can't wait to see progress!
I've draped the fabric and created my pattern. I've already cut out the final dress and now I'm putting it together. Cutting the fabric was the toughest step because my dog kept seeing the fabric as an invitation to walk over it, take a nap on it, dig into it, etc.
