Baby Day Gown Project
The baby day gown lace trim and embroidery band made with decorative machine stitches is a creative way to use those decorative stitches.
The lace was made with one row of zig zag stitches and three rows of decorative stitches. Water soluble stabilizer is placed on either side of bridal veil netting to secure the stitching. This gown used rayon embroidery thread to make the lace; however, cotton thread is a good choice.
The embroidered band was made with Omni Motion decorative stitches down the center and wing needle entredeux stitches (zig zag stitches can also be used with the wing needle) for the borders. Water soluble stabilizer is placed on the back of the fabric.
The best way to keep the Omni Motion stitches in the center of the fabric is to use the Multi-Line Decorative Stitch Foot. Three strands of hand embroidery thread were weaved in the entredeux stitches. Click here for further information on How to make entredeux with your sewing machine.
