Seeing as I’m planning on sewing a whole new outfit for 17th of May, I figured it would be a good idea to start practicing embroidery. I found this really pretty ivy brocade which I’m going to turn into a vest, but of course, there is no garment trim that matches it. So I will be embroidering leaves onto the skirt by hand.

This is just a practice round of an idea which might, in some form or another, wind up on the cuffs and collar of the shirt of the outfit. Probably not this dark, but maybe matching the white of the shirt. The “dots” in the all the crosses might have some vague, pale gold colour though, just to break it up a little. I don’t know yet, we’ll see! 🙂
