Hi there. :]
So today I have a new upcycle to show you! I’ve been working on this one for quite awhile now and am very excited to be done with it!
I found this dress in my mother’s closet, and since it doesn’t really fit her anymore, she let me have it along with a few other items. Really I could have simply shortened it and been done with it. Easy fix. I, however, wanted to add more interest to this simple dress. I decided [maybe with a bit too much enthusiasm] to do some embroidery along the bottom of the dress. I chose a simple pattern and got to it.
Not bad, yes? My embroidery skills aren’t the best since this is a first attempt for me. My lines aren’t exactly the straightest, and some of the stitches are a bit tighter than they ought to be, but overall I would proclaim this a decent success.
Maybe I could have created the same basic effect by attaching a strip of interesting fabric to the bottom instead. That probably would be a lot simpler and take up a lot less time. It also would most likely result in a lot less pain in my fingers [seeing as how I managed to stab myself several million times it seems!]. I don’t think I will be taking on a project involving this much embroidery again, but lesson learned right? :]
