Re: Start to Finish, an Embroidered Fortuny Frock Coat

I've done smaller embroidery projects on clothes and accessories--but nothing elaborate. I find that people knowing you have an embroidery machine is like people knowing you own a truck--they always want a favor !! So, I spend more time on other people's projects than my own. Love your designs and inspiration--and especially the step by step instructions/explanations. Can I ask--how much of the project is planned ahead and how much of this is improvised as you go along?

Re: Using Buttons as Embellishment

Great jacket--what a cool idea. Question--did you layer any kind of batting or interfacing between the lining and the button shanks so that you don't feel the shanks? thanks for all the great information!
