Sometimes you don't discover a goof up until it is too late. The motif in the first picture looks a little large for the scale of the design and the size of the dress, but the bodice was already sewn together and ready to put onto the skirt. I added a lot of crystals to the knotwork on the applique. I am not sure whether it was a save or not.
Also, the hearts on the sleeve look like the have antennae coming out of them. Ooops! Some crystals will distract from that though.
