Teal and mint smooth dress

So I posted a concept picture for this dress a little while ago, and surprisingly, it's stayed relatively true to the original. I decided that the cap sleeves I was going for were just going to look silly in practice so I nixed them and decided to make both gauntlets and bracelets (though I have made neither yet) so that I have options depending on whether it is very warm or not. So here are some pictures of the steps.

the fabric arrives

I forgot to take pictures for a little while... oops!

adding the bodice detail

all stitched together, prior to beading

back- post beading, prestoning

front- post beading, pre stoning

That's as far as I've gotten so far. I'm still waiting on my stones to arrive in the mail and then I'll start stoning!
