Embroidery Experimenting

Quick before work sewing adventure

Well, a little already embroidered fabric, backed with some lilac silk, underlying scarf was a little darker lavendar color to enhance the embroidery and scalloped and leaf embroidered around the edge and trimmed.
The blouse is from the 'Treasure Hunt Room'... Already smocked and textired damask type embellishment
Blouse made without a pattern-folded over to shirt length-boatneck hole cut in fold...sides sewn up to arm hole width and sleeves attached with a horizontal cuff that was also scalloped embroidery.
The neckline was foldover self bias strip and slightly gathered to give a tiny standup edge.  Long side strip made a neck scarf to tie in a sailors scarf knot.
Burgundy Tubins' enhanced the colors in the embroidery.

  Back to baby tie receiving blankets that I haven't quite figured out ..... pictures to follow

Sewing Crazy

I found way tooooo many things I want to make:
I will post Minerva Mannequin in the jackets and dress and jacket I just made.. White Lace, Pink and Burgundy Lace and Gold Dress with the previously made Black and Gold Jacket....

Here is  the beige drape neck dress.. just made to go with the pinks and browns of the Lace - 'The Nuances of Burgundy' 

Print - Cut three jackets at a time... and 2 dresses... The other dress is the gold one..

Then we add the jacket and scarf... and of course the covered button earrings..

And we did the White Lace one.. paired with a dress already made

 But I found a lovely little Baby Wrap Receiving Blankets Idea,

I have to make this right away... baby due next week... will post pic of tie bunting made with minky for boy.

So Little Time?-Cut in Multiples

Find a pattern you like - alter to fit and cut out in multiples...

This is how I have many blouses and free flowing Jackets and pants...

3 is my favorite Number

This is three Jackets that I am cutting out right now.... Earrings are made and one pair is in my ears.

The blue pair is in my ears.... the black gray and white pair -There is a new dress pattern on Miranda Mannequin  I am starting to do hats, so I just ordered Harriet Hathead...Sorry, everything is a laugh to me.  I am out of the covered button size I like for my earrings... so I guess I have to buy some more.....

Now back to cutting out the rest of the jacket pieces and I am planning on wearing the blue one today... we will see.... the blogging part takes some time👿

Wore the Blue one.... One down and 3 to go!
