      I haven't had problems with this, but maybe that's because I bead the bottom hem all around the dress. It might be acting as a counterweight without me meaning for it to.

      Subject: [sig] Clothing conter-weights?

      So, I'm beading the front of my "good-enough" Russian formal and I've discovered that if I don't use a counter weight of some kind on the back, then the entire coat is pulled forward and out of place by the sheer weight of the beadwork.

      Does anyone know if the Rus sewed counter-weights into the back hems of their garments to deal with this? Or did they bead all up and down the back as well (which would make chairs REALLY uncomfortable at an all day event).

      the very confused
