Ta-daa, it’s finally looks like a dress ;) so the only thing left to do now is to cover the skirt part with flowers, and yes it will take lots of time. But I will try to finish this dress soon because I have many dresses left to embroider for my collection..
It almost feels like I don’t have much to write about anymore, because I don’t do anything except embroidering flowers, but at least I can share some pictures with you. The top is now more covered with flowers but there’s still a lot of work left to do, but I really enjoy it.I often get questions if I use machine for embroidery, which I don’t because I make all the embroidery by hand. But the truth is that it’s actually very exhausting and takes incredible much time to do. Every night when I go to sleep I have lots of pain in my back and in my hands, because embroidering flowers for 15 hours per day isn’t good for the body, but I love it anyway ;)
I have started to embroider another top for an upcoming dress. This top has an open back, which I really love, and the whole top will be covered in flowers. I still use the same fabric and thread, but this time I embroider both small and large flowers and I the mix looks really good.// love nütie
This week I have started to embroider the top part of my second dress for my upcoming collection. And as you may have noticed the collection will contain lots of embroidered flowers, it’s kinda my thing! Below you can see what I’ve been working with for the last days.
The top part is sewed with same tulle fabric that I used for the flower dress. You can also see that a hidden zipper has been sewn onto the side.
I continue to use DMC Mouliné thread, but this time I use two different shades for the flower pattern (#3740, #154)
When I embroider the front parts I always begin to cover the bust. Then I cover the center part and finally the sides.
I use the same embroidery technique as I always do, only this time the size of the flowers are smaller.
This is my original sketch of the dress. I wanted to cover the whole top with flowers and I especially wanted the flowers to get smaller on the upper part.
I realized that the smaller flowers didn’t look as good as I imagined it. So, I decided to skip my original idea as I always do.
This is how the front part will look like. I think I will embroider some more flowers on the sides for more coverage and I will also embroider flowers on the arms.
Now when I have finished the embroidering there’s only some small details to finish. For the moment I’m adjusting the length of the dress which actually takes some time because the dress consists of 3 layers, so there’s a lot of fabric to cut. But I must say that I’m incredible satisfied with the result so far.
