Embroidering on this dress took 45 hours of embroidery machine work only, not counting changing threads, hooping etc. But it was worth it…

More details on my blog:

Material Notes

Heavy but soft cotton. And around 5km of embroidery thread.

    This is a piece of art! And the color is adorable! Worth every little cm of the 5km of embroidery thread:)

      Thank you! I treat my sewing as some kind of art – just more useful than painting ;)
