Decorating ballet costume bodice – beading

For my ballet costume bodice, I wanted to make the bodice more luxerious and decorative – so I beaded small red beads around some of the fabric dye pattern and some with crimson small beads to let the costume shine further in different lights! Inspired by the Alexander McQueen’s women’s Autumn/Winter 2008 ‘The girl who lived in a tree’McQueen3

This is a photo of me beading around the outline of the magenta print (on the bodice) and the photo underneath shows the bigger picture of the beading; the patterns on the front 3 panels arre mostly beaded and then the beads dispurse and the panels toawawrd the back of the bodice have less red and crimson beads.
