My mom and I was going to our tailor yesterday. She tailored a dress made from batik with a little embellishments of beads. I don't really like the beads on the dress so when I came home, I showed her how the beads should look like. Then somehow in the middle of my final exam, I decided to created this post so everyone know how designers sew beads.
