Beading on Lace

I had planned to make a draped gown. The top layer would be olive green beaded lace against satin of the same colour.

Good quality beaded lace is Expensive with a capital E.
You'll be lucky to find anything under rm200 per metre in KL and it can go up to rm2000 for the imported designer stuff.
.
So I decided to buy some plain lace (at a fraction of the cost) and do the beading myself.

I used 3 colours of glass beads (gold, dark copper and light yellow-green) with light mint green sequins to add shine.

This is the test swatch. The original lace is on the right.
Wow, what a difference!
