I just finished this today. It was started a while back for a CAL but do to all the beads and sequins I took quite a few breaks. I did make a couple changes. I didn't like the seem showing on the net overlay, so I put beads on that, and I also put a row of beads up the front. The curly q's were to be glued on, but I stiffened them then sewed them on. I also added to rows of beads to the bottom of the bodice, and an extra row of beads on the bottom of the net overlay. The pattern also showed her holding the net overlay in her hand, so I added a beaded loop. Hope you enjoy this.

That turned out beautiful. I just love the Paradise patterns. You did a great job.:hook

Did you buy the kit? If not, where did you get all the beads and sequins for the pattern.
