We asked Rhinestones Unlimited to ‘decorate’ our new Web Store Style #D12000. We created the CAD pattern, cut and then sewed the costume together, including hand-placed embroidered floral appliques that we purchased from Rhinestones Unlimited. We used six appliques Style #DIY Vinca A and Vinca B. The appliques are sometimes cut apart and placed to create the look we want. This particular style is our favorite from Rhinestones Unlimited.
Step #1 Added Jet Hematite 40ss to centers of larger flowers
Step #2 Added Light Chrome 12ss around the Hematite in the centers of the flowers
Step #3 Added Jewel Cut Crystal AB Pears in Large Leaves
Step #4 Added 2 Jewel Cut Crystal AB Marquise and 1 Jewel Cut Crystal AB Pear into the 3 set leaves on the ends of the appliques
Step #5 Added Sapphire AB 30ss in all centers of lg. flower petals
Step #6 Added Light Chrome 16ss in all small flower centers
Step #7 Added Sapphire AB 16ss in an inverted triangle on the flower petals
Step #8 Added Sapphire AB 12ss as inverted triangle to finish off the flower petals
Step #9 Added Crystal AB Unfoiled 16ss smaller leaves. 2 per leaf
Step #10 Added Light Sapphire 12ss to all small flower petals
Step #11 Added Crystal AB UF 16ss and Light Sapphire Shimmer 12ss. Alternating lines on the mesh
Step #12 Added extra mesh stones to give a spray effect.
Step #13 Added Small and Large Sew on Pears in Light Sapphire Shimmer to fill in empty spots and add extra dimension.
Step#14 Added Air Blue Opal 12ss and 16ss, Light Sapphire Shimmer 12ss and Crystal AB UF 16ss as a scattered pattern – fading the appliques.
We don’t have a tally or cost for the actual Swarovski rhinestones that are used. We recommend that you order this costume plain, and do your own rhinestone embellishment. Or, custom order the embellishment from Satin Stitches, based on your needs.
