This time I wanted to have contrasting colours for the woven front so used red and blue poplin to match the colours of the main fabric. The neckline was done with plain red poplin. The belt was to be plain blue, however I had to put my new embroidery machine to work so I found a design that was similar to the design on the fabric and embroidered the belt.
I didn't have quite enough blue poplin for the belt, so I added a red panel at the back, changing the embroidered red flowers to blue - there are blue flowers in the main fabric, so again it matches.
I love my new embroidered dress. It is something that will be uniquely me - good or bad!
