It’s always fun to do a little online window shopping. Here are a few embroidery designs that could be used to embellish Mexican blouses or any tops that you like.
The designs above are Decorative Flowers from Sweet Heirloom Embroidery at Oregon Patch Works. These would combine well around a neckline or across a yoke.
Above is Folk Flowers Deco also from Sweet Heirloom Embroidery at Oregon Patch Works. A single motif can be placed around a neckline attractively as I tried to do in one of my Mexican blouses by curving the placement of the design:
The corner designs are from Folk Flower Corners from Sweet Heirloom Embroidery. I have lots of corner designs and want to try grouping them around the neckline as in the blouse above. The designs below, Heirloom Decor from Sweet Heirloom Embroidery at Oregon Patch Works, have a Victorian feel to them. Sometimes it is nice to do embroidery in one color only for an elegant look.
In actual real-life sewing, I’m still working on the black gauze top but hope to finish today. I got interrupted by the apricots which ripened sooner than expected and had to be prepared for batches of jam. I froze the batches to be cooked in cooler weather next fall.
