Beginning to Sew Final Garment

 Before this stage I'd already sewn the bodice and skirt, then I had to sew the petals together, cut down the seam, turn inside out, press, and sew wire next to the seam with a one toed zipper foot.
Sewing the wire into the petals was challenging because I had to bend it to the curves of the petal and make sure that the wire was as close to the seam as possible, but I'm really pleased with how they turned out.
 I also added darker brown tones to the bottom of some of the petals because some had dried lighter than others and then pinned them to the mannequin to get an idea of the placement on the waist.
