Lovebirds and Rainbows

Just a quick post today! I thought I’d share with you an embroidery I designed for a bride earlier this year. The great part of my job is working closely with my brides and to design their “dream dress”. This bride wanted to incorporate birds, rainbows, hearts and possibly a My Little Pony! onto a 1950s styled dress.

So I went to work and designed her an embroidery using brightly coloured threads to go onto a beautiful red grosgrain moire fabric.

Rainbow Lovebird Sequinned Heart

In addition to the embroideries I stitched a sequinned Loveheart onto the midriff of the dress.

Net Petticoat

To bring out the colours I also made a brightly coloured petticoat to be worn underneath the dress. The net colours were red, fusia pink and yellow!
