Summer Sewing Challenge - Express Yourself in Linen

Linen safari dress

Linen safari dress with quilted seams and bead embroidery on collar

Initially i wanted to try out the tips from Kennteth D. King book “Designer Bead Embroidery” book that i had just purchased. The safary theme came with the colour of the fabric i bought and this is the outcome.

Bead embroidery on the collar is my first attempt and oucome is only remotly similar with the pattern from the book :). The difficult was to find similar beads since the ones i bought were not with good quality and size varied a lot.

    You did a beautiful job on the bead design. Your topstitching looks so nice and neat also. Nice work!

    I would like to make a very similar dress - haven't yet found a good starting pattern (I have a large bust and don't know how to do an FBA!).

    This looks very comfortable. I love that tiny patch pocket! Great job.
