I want to give you a sneak peek of what I have been working on to give you some ideas for easy embellishments!
I drafted a pattern for a jon-jon, but it's the collar that I want to focus on. I added the sweet scalloped lace edging to the collar and altho it look super cute just the way it is, I decided to 'boy-it-up' just a bit.
This is a close-up of the scalloped lace trim I used.
Using DMC Pearl Cotton #8, I began whip-stitching the
Pearl Cotton thru the loops in the lace edging.
This creates the look of whipped piping
Here is the contrast between the scalloped
lace edging on the right and the whipped
edging on the left.
Since I was playing around with ideas,
I decided to whip-stitch back on itself
and create an 'x' stitch
You can see how much bolder
this makes the edging!
Here's the contrast between the
two ways you could whip-stitch
the scalloped lace edging!
I totally love how this turned out!
In a couple days I will show you the completed garment!
I hope you enjoyed this quick little tutorial!
