Happy! Excited! IT WORKED!!!!!! My custom embroidered decorative trim for the neckline and sleeve edges for my Elizabethan smock (Simplicity 2621) has turned out the way I hoped it would! Happy dance time!
custom embroidery trim: Forget-Me-Not
Forget-Me-Not custom trim
Sometimes ... well, often ... my experiments don't turn out as I hoped. So when one actually does come out looking like the picture in my head, I get very very excited and happy. This embroidered decorative trim idea is exactly what I wanted ... well, it will look much more like planned once I wash the fabric marker off the edges. I used a very short zigzag to create the satin stitch at the edges, and the pinked ends will be inside seams, folded under, or covered by a cross piece of trim.
