This was one of my first and extensive stitching projects.
I had this blouse in a scrubs kind of colour. I like the colour but did not like to look like if I flew from the OR.
So I made this stitching. It took a few days and I can not figure out if I can accept how the motive deforms when I wear it..



the front:



shoulder detail:



arm detail:



a very blurry me modeling it:



and if anyone is interested the layout scribbels:



I drew this directly on the fabric with a white polychromo pencil, corrected it and then drew the final motive with a ballpoint

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Wow! This has me all agog. What an awesome design, and you drew that? Amazing. I love octupi and the tentacles wrapping around the front and sleeves is so cool. Love the colors too.
