I am making my daughter’s wedding dress and need help figuring out the best way to paint on silk chiffon. She wanted a very simple dress and I have made one from silk charmeuse and two layers of silk chiffon. The problem in that her future sister-in-law was married over the Memorial Day weekend and her dress bodice was heavily embroidered; now my daughter want something less “simple”. We have settled on painting the chiffon godet panels with a leaf and flower design but I am unsure how best to go about this.
I have painted fabric in the past, but I am afraid that if I use my usually embroidery hoop “stretcher” to get a pucker free design, the fabric will stretch too much. I plan on using Jacquard textile paint in white.
Does any one have ideas or solutions for me?
