How many times have you wanted to embroider on a special garment, but did not have the courage to carry out your plan? Maybe you could not visualize the finished product, or perhaps it was a difficult fabric or shape to hoop. In many instances, I have expensive garments that I just don’t want to take the chance of making a mistake. We all know that Murphy’s Law is alive and well in our sewing room.
I have developed a method which I call Couture Embroidery, in which I embroider on tulle, making the embroidery an Applique which I stitch onto the garment.
I have found this to be a wonderful creative tool, as I can create my embroideries and then play around with the layout before I stitch the embroideries down.
