|Making a start on embroidery|
Having read this article on the subject and gained some good advice on the subject of fabrics from the Sense&Sensibility forum...I decided to go and rummage through my offcuts bag. I had just enough of some plain white polycotton left over to make a 'triangle' although it was more of a rounded triangle, but not quite a half circle and shaped the neck.
Hand sewed a rolled hem. And now for the decorations.
This is my initial design. Taking influence from the 'classical' but also adding in a little nod to the 'seaside'. I wanted it to be simple enough so I could do it in the time available.
