Anna's Garden Reverse Applique

Making a very wide border of reverse applique and embroidery for a blue jersey dress. The blue is laid over a lining of black, the shapes are stencilled on with fabric paint, then stitched around with button and craft thread, then the inside of the shape is snipped out with much holding of the breath. I'm almost done with the front of the skirt, then I'll do the back, then I'll put them together!

Lovely. Just so lovely, Anna.

You have inspired me to get over my fear of jersey. I finally dipped my toe in with Alabama Chanin. I've made up two sleeveless tees (getting the fit right) and have a bolero pinned together. Love to wear these designs! Thank you for your blog, I've been following along for years now.
