So, I bought two plain dresses for my daughters, with intention of embellishing them, and they’ve been sitting in the “to do” pile, waiting, for about 6 months.
Last night I finally got around to it – there’s nothing like the last minute for getting things done.
I did the machine embroidery on separate fabric first (I’m still not quite confident with embroidering directly onto knit fabric). Next I cut it into a simple heart shape to appliqué directly onto the dress.
I rummaged through my stash of trims until I decided on this shabby rose mesh to frame the heart. My girls love their matching pony dresses.
Of course, there was a reason for being in such a rush to finish them – a special visit.
Thanks for looking!
