I have a question. The original dress on the Graceful lady, the green and white one with velvet trim. Is that beading in the center of the trim? Just what it looked like to me and piqued my curiosity.
Not sure which dress you're referring to -- could you provide a link? If you mean the dress at the top of the page of the "silk dresses" section that has velvet trim around the fichu -- no, there is no beading.
