I am still designing an embroidery pattern for the yoke of the Mexican Peasant Blouse. I was discussing this with M when I remembered an old cotton summer dress I made for myself back in the 70’s during a hot east coast summer. I found the old dress and was impressed at how nice chain stitch looks when used for embroidery. The embroidery design came from a DMC booklet on Czechoslovakian Embroidery.
I am going to try a combination of machine and hand embroidery, since I have to make a lot of these blouses and it would take me years if I had to do all the embroidery by hand.
I am going to make a ‘muslin’ of the top in lime green broadcloth to test out the pattern. M wants me to cut the neckline down a little so that is what I am going to work on today.
