Part 2 of the Broiderie Anglaise Online class series is now out. Moving on from the circular shapes of the first class, we will be trying our hand at the other cut work shapes in our traditional whitework design and creating contrast to our piece. After focusing on taking away fabric to create the design, we will offset this by adding satin, raised satin and outline stitch elements for some extra texture.
If you purchased a bundle for this course then part 2 will be waiting for you in your inbox. If not, or if you are new to the course, follow the link for the second and final part of this series.
Could this be your new mending method when you get a hole or tear in your favourite garment? Does that piece really need mending in the traditional sense, or could you make a feature of its flaw? In today’s ever increasingly aware culture of conspicuous consumption and slow fashion movements, the techniques included in Broiderie Anglaise online class series can be put to great use with a little creativity. It is a beautiful art in its own right, but it’s safe to say, the skills used to create it have some transferable and handy applications.
With skills like these, holes and eyelets have never looked so good, when you know what to do with them.
