I have begun the embroidery on another custom order dress. Here is a preview of the collar embroidery. I am doing the embroidery on the buttons. There will also be embroidery on the sleeves.
I had a request to do a custom smocked dress for the same lady who ordered the blue embroidered roses dress. She selected the material for me to order, and gave me the details as to what sort of pattern she had in mind, as well as sending a photo of possible smocking idea. I planned the smocking, selected the thread colors, taking photos of options for her to chose. Pictured below is the selection she went with.
Below are photos of the finished dress.
