Simple Stitches Class
Take a basic yoke dress, add some ladder hemstitching, gathered lace and four simple embroidery stitches and you have got sublime simplicity in a baby garment! This easy dress is a cinch to hemstitch & embroider on exquisite linen. Delicate flowers & leaves are stitched as though they are peeping out from behind the hemstitching. Granitos disguised as pink pearls are sprinkled in between the hemstitching rows to add focus and extra detail. Stitches covered are: ladder hemstitch, lazy daisy, granito, stem & outline. Lace is hand gathered and stitched on either side of the embroidered hemstitching to highlight this unique and delightful design, as seen in Sew Beautiful magazine, Issue 146 (Jan-Feb '13). The dress front and sleeves will be the class emphasis; students will finish the dress at home. This is a 6-hour approved SAGA class.
