How to make my own beading strand for my dress?

Recommended Posts

I am getting my dress custom made and there is beading under the bustline on the "inspiration dress". My seamstress charges and extra $100 dollars to hand bead it or I can make/buy my own. It is basically a strand/ribbon of beads that will be sewn on. I have checked out michaels and found some things, but nothing I loved. Does anyone have any advice on where to find something like this or if I will need to by the beads and sew/glue them to the ribbon?

 

Here is the dress I am getting made, you can click on the view closer or altenative images to see the beading a bit better...

I would try an actual fabric store as opposed to a craft store like Michaels. They sell the appliques and stuff for dresses.

 

I would definitely sew it to the dress instead of gluing it. That way it will move with you in the dress.

 

You might see if you can buy the materials and have your seamstress sew it on if you aren't comfortable doing it.
