I began my day today working on "Jill" with some sweet machine embroidery...
The entire collar is stitched in the hoop & lined!
I stitched out 2 collars and a pocket
I then began stitching rows of tiny tucks
To make tiny tucks, I folded my fabric on the tuck line and pressed it. Using a zipper foot, I placed the fold of the tuck under the foot and moved my needle to the last dot on the right. After the tuck is stitched, open out the folded fabric to the stitching and press the tuck towards the armhole. The result is a beautiful tiny tuck!
I have another tutorial on tiny tucks using a slightly different method, that you can read here! Only that reminds me, I have yet to complete that little gem of a dress! I simply must get back at it, now that I have reminded myself that it has become
neglected, err one of my PhD's (Projects Half Done) in progress!
Beautiful tiny tuck!
I attached a beautiful machine embroidered collar
to the neckline
...and added a darling little pocket
to the skirt of the dress!
And don't you just love a puffed sleeve?
