This Mother of the Bride silk dress coat is now nearly finished! Last thing to do is to add the diamante embellishments before the final sewing. I only put a few on as I didn’t want to over-power the hand painted silk.

The Final Sewing:
The coat still needs the sleeves sewn on and the sparkly buttons down the front.
