It take a descent picture, Antoinette tucked the bodice into the skirt. I rather like it this way too. Hubby thinks it looks like a old-maid school teacher but that is kind of the look.
I've been thinking and doing this dress for too long. It is taking up all my thoughts. So I had to do something else. And I had to see another color. So I sat down and sketched out a butterfly on tissue paper (it's easier to draw on tissue paper than your fabric). Layered it up on some batting and interfacing .
And just went to town.
After you have most of your picture quilted, remove the tissue paper. I use an old set of tweezers to remove the pieces.
When you're all done you may have to wash it under running water to remove the small pieces. And you May not even get in all out than. If you look on the right wing, you'll see what looks to be white thread, that's still the tissue paper in the stitches. So I need to run it back under the water.
Later I'll reveal what these is for. I'm still trying to make it work...
Take care, Brandie
