Applique by machine

This is one of my favourite outfit. I bought the base fabric and lace from India. It’s called Jute Cotton. I love it, especially it’s rough texture and some hints of brown in it. I then bought a printed chiffon for scarf in Canberra. I decided to go with a very simple design of large flowers made out of the printed chiffon and used ribbon to make the stem. To stabilise the chiffon I used stickon webbing so I could fix the flowers on the outfit before using zig zag stitch to outline the flowers and the centres are done by doing the free motion embroidery technique. To see the embroidery detail please double click onto the flower.
