PatternReview is turning 20 this November 28 and as a long-time member I am so excited to celebrate with the rest of the global community!
For the left side, I embellished a black handkerchief linen with outlines of the states where PR weekends were held in different years like Texas, LA, Oregon, NY, etc. I added an applique of a thread spool and stitched a thread coming from it to loop through all the different state outlines, sort of representing "the thread that binds the sewing community."
Printing on Fabric:
|Wrong side showing how the seams were finished with zigzag stitches. |
|Right bodice pattern laid out on the fabric.|
|Right bodice cut.|
Embellishing on Fabric
|I won this set of gorgeous embroidery threads for Sewing Bee 2019. |
And for icing on the cake, I created a special tag to commemorate the occasion!
