Heavily embroidered voile which was to be incorporated
into end product, but it didn’t lie flat, so discounted it.
however this could be usedin construction
Applique techniques were applied here to see what the effect would be. Its interesting but again not the right one for my waistcoat
I particularly like this design, using knitted wool sewn into.
Which was extremely effective and will definitely try again.
Net was something that i wanted to be incorporated into the waistcoat. It was quite difficult to sew and keep the net flat. I wanted to use net as i wanted an element of delicacy.
Quilted fabric was stitched over. I felt this had all the elements needed, depth, texture, colour and composition. A very successful outcome
Again i left the backing off which was frustrating, but a lesson learnt
