Decorating the Eco Dress – Butterick 5882

The other day I finished lining the eco dress so today I have been working on the decoration – coffee filter flowers. I started off by using a flower punch to cut the flowers out of the coffee filters:

I then marked out where I wanted the flowers on the skirt of the dress with pins. I wanted a relatively random patterns but wanted to make sure the flowers were not too close:

Then I sew the flowers on using a sequin and seed bead for detail:

I also added some flowers the the straps:

I can’t wait to show you all the finished dress…I am showing it to miss Cambridge first though.
