Dress Update

The dress is progressing quite well with only a few mishaps.
The dress only needs a hem, so I am in great shape there.
The bustier....well...I had it just about finished, zipper sewn in, boned and ready to for the petersham ribbon. I had been wearing it and then I noticed that the zipper had begun to separate. I have no idea why. There was no way to save it, in fact, I was barely able to get the thing off over my head. It ended up being a two man job. Thank goodness for husbands!! So now I am armed with a metal zipper.
I was asked about accessories. The bracelet that you see in the top right hand corner is a piece that I found at a garage sale. Shhh, don't tell anyone :) The feathers will be a little head piece and I plan to use the ribbon, but twist it around so the stripes are  going in lots of different directions. I found the beads and I plan to use for them earrings. By this evening I should be in good shape. I hope!!!
