I've finished the first dress of my new line, and started the second. This one took FAAAAAR longer than I thought it would, but the end result is stunning. I'm so happy with it. It gets bluer on the back left side, but I couldn't turn all the way around because the dress is about a size 8-10, and it's clamped on my body for the pictures.
Final count of silk neckties used? About 50.
Dress #1 of my new "line."
