in GEMS2 months ago

Hello Hiveians

Here is a new and beautiful A line dress for a customer .
The fabric was a light navy blue material while I used patterns from another Ankara fabric for the embellishment

Here is how I did the embellishment

  • I got a scissors and cut out the flowery patterns on an ankara material.

  • Next I added an interface ( bff) to the wrong side of the fabric to give it more stiffness . This was done using a pressing iron to melt the glue on the interface into the fabric .

  • After that I took it to the stoning machine and creatively place stones on the fabric at a calculated distance that will give it the beautiful look you see below.

Great style, Lots of work!!! How long did it take you to put the beads into the dress??

Thank you , It took me 8 long hours and I also had to endure the heat from the stoning machine but it's worth it afterall

That's impressive, the dress will be an eyecatcher! And you have shown the most important tool for sewing: the iron - people who don't sew can't imagine how often things are ironed till a project is finished :)

Thanks.

That's true, I can imagine how many time we iron a garment before it is completed
