I have made a lot of beadwork strips over the years. Some for dance regalia. Some for war shirts, pipe & flute bags. One of my favorites to do is wedding gowns. This set is one of my favorites. I loved beading this set of strips. The background beads are a Pale Ivory. The leather dress was made by Joni Struckmeier of Golden Eagle Trading Post. She does Fabulous leather work.
