An Embroidered Confection

July 26, 2013

This lovely number was inspired by a vintage dress I spied on Pinterest. I used Simplicity 1873 for the pattern and did the floral row in cross stitch.

Here’s the inspiration dress, from a fashion blogger in LA who found it at a vintage shop.


I’ll be doing a tutorial next week on how I did the embroidery on the dress if you’d like to stop by!

More on my blog right now about this dress:

  • More fun pictures! I took these while on the Sound of Music tour in Salzburg.
  • Modifications I made from the inspiration dress.

  1. Oh my goodness, this dress is marvellous! I admire you so much for cross-stitching all those flowers. It’s one of the best things about sewing that you can just go and recreate a style that you want, and this is such a great example of that. Well done, and thanks for sharing!

  2. Wooden garage door offer timeless beauty and elegance, and can give you a natural
    look inexpensively. With the garage door closed, place the ladder below the motor and find the limit switches.
    If your garage door is old and worn out, a new one can do a lot to improve the
    look of your home.
