Question: What was your favorite garment that was hand-sewn, and who sewed it for you? Mine was a yellow A-line dress that my mom made, and I wore white go-go boots with it. Nancy Sinatra sang my theme song!
Glamour Girl by Christen Brown
This piece started with the fun print that was used in all four blocks. I loved the colors that were used and found additional fabrics in both stripes and prints in those same colors. I also incorporated a few precious strips of vintage batik fabrics. The piece is embellished with rick rack trim, grosgrain and novelty ribbons, embroidery, beads and sequins, and novelty buttons.
This is a new piece, that can be seen in my new book, Hand Embroidery Dictionary, by C&T Publishing.
