Yes, it has 21 separate panels on each half of the dress. And a couple thousand hand-sewn sequins and seed pearls and diamantes. And a feathered train. And I still can't believe I made it!

Wow. This is an absolutely amazing dress. I am in awe.

Amazing! How many hours did you spent on this?

Thank you!  

As to how many hours...I didn't count, and I'd be a little scared to!  Upwards of 150 - I did two complete toiles, with the 2nd one finished like a proper dress.  When it comes to sewing, I'm crazy patient.  Pity I don't manage it in all aspects of life ;-)

That is absolutely stunning!

WOW! I want to make my own wedding dress. I am sure it would NOT be anything as breathtaking!

Comment by Leimomi Oakes - The Dreamstress on January 7, 2012 at 5:52pm

Thank you both.  @Claire - I didn't go for something quite as spectacular for my own wedding dress.  I just didn't have the chutzpah to carry it off!
