I conquered the Diva trim yesterday - getting it all gathered, pinned on and tied off. Whew!! Did that take f-o-r-e-v-e-r! But it's done now and I can move on the more brainless handwork pursuits of hooks & eyes and sewing that trim down with spangles.
I have many man hours left on the project but I still feel like I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel on this frock - yay!
