The only thing I’m green with envy about is that I want this dress in real life. I LOVE these dresses from Elizabeth Turner Collection! This is the second dress that I’ve stitched. I started a third one a few days ago. The third one is turning out to be my favorite.
This one was not as easy to figure out as the pink dress.
I ripped out 90% of the skirt. I first used Soie d’Alger for the skirt. It was so flat and dead. But, I had to get enough in before I could really see it. Thank God Bargello is easy to rip out. But those damn pin stitches! If you think that a pin stitch isn’t secure, I beg to differ. Those little suckers stick in tight! Even with a single strand of thread.
Looks like I beaded the bodice and the belt. Guess again! If you know me at all, I only bead under penalty of death!
The stitch guide is now available, as well as the kit I’ve got canvases on order. So give me a shout if you’re interested.
