Alabama Chanin: Violet Paisley Applique

This violet jersey dress for Bella has been finished for a long time--just forgot to photograph it. I used Alabama Chanin's "Paisley" applique in a slightly darker shade of violet, then stitched two rows of beads inside each shape, in lavender and pale green. Oddly this made the paisley shapes look like sea creatures. You just never know.

It's still a great dress.

Very elegant looking, but I suppose they do look like sea creatures!

Oh, these are always such a treat to see. You do such great work! May I ask, how do you launder these fine things? By hand? Machine?

A lovely girl in a lovely dress is a sight to behold! Beautiful! I want to see more of the dress and the girl.

Ashley Pond,

I was these in the machine on delicate, and if they are beaded, then generally in a lingerie bag. I usually dry them flat but find that time in a warm dryer helps them keep their shape as well.
