1  Romanian blouse in CHALLENGE 87 ENTRIES by Aura-Aurelia on: June 09, 2013 10:52:15 AM
Hi,

it's my first post here;)
a few weeks ago I was searching for embroidery patterns and found Craftster.org !
The theme of #87 challenge gave me the key to my project: an embroidered blouse. I wanted a traditional Romanian blouse, but with simplified embroidery pattern as I wasn't sure I can handle a traditional one, which is very difficult and time-consuming.

The shape I've chosen is zigzag, as it helped me to converge several old embroidery patterns. It's my first experience in "counted-thread embroidery" and I liked it so much that I already think of a new one:)

The blouse is entirely handmade, without any machine stitch. Fabric: 100% linen. Thread: DMC B5200 and S5200.






I'm not sure if this project is eligible for this challenge (and I'm non-US resident (?)), if I cannot enter - then it will be my first post here:)

Thank you!
