Prepping the dress by adding embellishments for ME Hotel London. I had to hand stitch the embellishments individually. It gave the dress a bit of a gothic style.

I’ve been beading non-stop this week. And it’s not even complete and theres at least 6 more garments to go. The beading is quite relaxing but sometimes it gets to the point that I’m almost falling asleep on my chair. Nonetheless the outcome looks amazing so far. Thank god we have new interns starting this week.

WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Basting 3 garments for Kuwait production. I had to bast a silk and lace fabric together. Basting is long easily removable stitches, sewn by machine or by hand. Basting stitches are sewn to temporarily sew fabric together. There are many reasons that taking the time to baste is beneficial to saving time in the long run.
