This is a project I started last spring to test out my new embroidery machine. I picked Simplicity top 3887 for this project because I wanted a simple garment that would give me lots of space to try out learning how to place the embroidery design onto the garment. I started out by cutting out the bodice from the fabric and using paper prints of the design to decide how to place the embroidery onto the garment. After taking a photo of the paper design I used the embroidery machine to place each feather onto the bodice front. Once the design was on the garment I stitched up the shirt. The original shirt had sleeves and a wide neck band for a collar, but I found that I was not so happy with the way it looked on me. After 3 months of sitting in my closet I decided to pull it out and chop off the sleeves and neckband. I replaced them with a shoulder strap tie to make it look like summer. Now I’m loving it.
