embroidered collar

It's been slow to start, but I finally began sewing the girl's Easter dresses last night and stayed up way too late embroidering the collars.  After sketching out a design, stitched a sample, and after a few tweaks drew the design on the collar pieces.  I used a stem stitch, french knot, lazy daisy, and back-stitch.

Obviously, there is much work to do, but if these dresses turn out as I envision, Ruby and Cora will look absolutely delicious on Easter.  Do you love to embroider?  I find it very therapeutic!

Way too cute. I love it and love to add that little extra to my designs.

Very sweet! I love hand embroidery. I snatch up vintage pieces I'm lucky enough to find. I love the thought of someone planning out a design and choosing just the right colors and sitting down during their free moments to lovingly put down each little stitch. Its like holding a tangible memory in your hands. Your collar is a perfect example!

Handmade and beautiful! Just curious, did you embroider before sewing the collar to lining?

Adorable! I'm working on 3 liberty Easter dresses. An embroidered collar would be gorgeous! Maybe next year.

oh my gosh, the collar is gorgeous! I can imagine the dress will be so pretty, can't wait to see the finished project! I usually avoid embroidery, but then I see something like this that makes me want to try it again!
