Description

I bought this dress in the sale last summer with the intention of customising it but it has sat in my to-do pile for a while. A couple of months ago I used a printing block I’d made to print some birds on it but because I used a dark green they didn’t show up too well. Then last weekend I was looking at the lace bird cushion covers I’d made and thought that it would be a good idea to use the same technique on the dress. So I did. I used the printing block as my template to cut out the lace birds and I used fusible adhesive web to attach the lace to the dress. I then secured the birds with free machine embroidery and gave them buttons for eyes. I’m really pleased with this dress now, I got lots of comments when I wore it to work this week and I think it will become one of my favourites.
