A Bit of Belly Anyone? - Finished!

A follow up to the post here.

Silly me didn't take a photo of the finished costume on my mannequin before delivering the lot. But I got some shots of the girls wearing them at the studio...

In consideration of their privacy, they are all wearing fuchsia masks!

And here a close-up (or some such) of the full outfit.

There is a total of nine strings of beads at the centre front of the bra and nine more hanging from the side front of the skirt.
2 of the appliques were butted up against each other to form the full 'flower' at centre front and on the skirt. There is one piece on the base of each of the bra strap.
An additional length of crystal string loops around the hips.

The ladies seemed pleased with the costume (although rather self-conscious as they modeled for me) and I guess I am too. As usual though, there are a few things I'd do differently next time :)
