Make do and mend – Beading replacement on lovely River Island dress

 

Hello there,

I was recently asked to mend a dress, It was not a alteration as such but some beads needed replacing. 

I took some beads from the back of the shoulders, and fixed the flowers at the front….

There were three flowers in need of work….

When I investigated these few beads that were missing, I noticed that the dreaded chain stitch was holding everything together. So after a bit of knot tying I secured the beads, then went ahead and stitched the beads I had stolen from the back to flowers…..

So here it is all beaded up! With a few close up’s too….

The dress is off home now the girls mummy is very happy with he work… I also enjoyed a bit of beading, It’s been a while!!

 

Do you do any beading?!?

Do you love it or hate it?!?!

Hello There 

How is everyone? If your a regular around here, you’ll know that my only consistency is being inconsistent! I have a heap of posts to do BUT I am snowed under with life and laundry as ever!!

So it has been quite round here but I have been sewing away…

It’s all Christmas fever around here, I’ve been making buntings, prep-ing stockings and designing stuffed robins too…

This my wee Robin, Designed by me 🙂 Just waiting to get stuffed with homemade Christmas spice…

And some yummy bunting….. Can’t wait to show you all the cute and funky combinations I have in the pipeline!!

And here’s my linen gingham mix for the Christmas stockings 🙂 I love these fabrics together, they just work so well together!

 

Anyways that’s it for today
