When summer hits Phoenix, it hits hard. . . We have been having an 'intense heat warning.' I don't know what that means, It's 118° I think that explains it quite well, then the weather guy adds 'intense'???
Personally, I wear a swimsuit just a LOT but I also wear dresses that are not clingy or snug. They are flowing and air circulates nicely. If I wanted to embroider something on the dress, I would want something that is not dense or large. Embroidery can be a bit on the heavy side even when they are not 'bullet proof' designs,
I was thinking about 'redwork', 'whitework' and 'blackwork.' Those are all great but certainly not much in the way of colorful or filled with interesting stitches.
So, I looked at a LOT of summer projects and did find that they were rather heavy. One of my dresses is chiffon with a satin lining that won't hold up under 10,000 stitches, it would distort the hang of the fabric.
I did a 'summer' blog a couple of months ago. You can see it and I still love the idea
Here is another take on embroidery and a great, simple dress.
You can put the design on as many times as you like, or in different places. Simple is a favorite word, along with 'sale' of course. (Check here for the sale,, it is a great dress!
The stitches are purposely a small distance apart.
