This dress took 2 years to make in preparation for the Waterloo anniversary celebrations. It was made from cappuccino colour Duchess Satin, approx. 2 kilos of glass beads and sequins, 10,000, metres of Thread, metalized edging, Lace, Linen linings, coutil interlinings, gauze, embroidery threads and heavy duty cotton backed gold Lame. The Lame was superb and all the fabrics were very good quality and there was a vast amount of choice which allows you to be creative rather than go for what you have to. Apart from the beads which were complex and were sourced from several global locations, some hand dyed, nearly all of this dress fabric was purchased at the Basingstoke store which I love. THANK YOU FABRIC LAND 🙂
