Been there, Done that!
This Barbie wedding gown is well on it's way to being finished. The dress is complete with the exception of all the lace and floral trim. The train is sewn but still needs the lace finished and attached.
I completed the pillow form, double strands for the form, a cardboard base that forms the bottom, filled with fiberfill. The base has a tube in the center for the doll to stand in.
Waiting on more thread Coates and Clark to finish the lace and need to make lots of flowers and then the veil. I'll keep posting until finished.
Standing in the base with some lace pinned to hem of skirt.

Finally finished some of the flowers for the front of the skirt. Got them placed a bit too far apart, but again I am a bit OCB!

Still need to do another round of lace on the train and all the flowers for the train and then the veil and believe she will be finished then!

Thanks so much. I just came from the doctor last week and he thinks the pain in my hands is arthritis and wants me to wear splints at night. Perhaps I should slow down, lol!

As one that has arthritis, I would say don't slow down, it will make it worse! Keep moving if you can.
