Where did you learn to embroider? I'd love to try it but can't find any free sites to tell me how to get started. I've found a couple that show stitches but not really how the stitches are supposed to go together to make a picture.
I just found a book in library... I can't remember the name, but it was some sort of Encyclopedia of Embroidery (that may have even been the title)... it was an AWESOME book. It had ALLLLLL these types of stitches, grouped into categories (like satin, cross, uh... whatever other names there are... hehe), and then within the categories, all different stitches, each had pictures of how they looked on fabric, and coloured drawings of how to make the stitches. It was a fabulous book.
I'd probably just recommend perusing your library to see what they've got... cuz I haven't found much in the way of websites either.
Thanks again everyone!
It's kinda funny cuz I ended up changing the dress cuz it was making me look fatter than I am (and since I'm chubby enough as it is...) so it fits nicer and looks even more like the picture...

I thought about writing something interesting here, but I guessed you'd read it anyways.

Thanks for the advice. We have a ton of libraries in the area but I can't check out books since I live in a township that doesn't have a library...argh! I'll see if I can get my dad to check out a book for me (he lives in an actual town even though he is only 5 minutes away from me  Roll Eyes). Or it might be easier to just go to a book store, LOL! It would probably be a good thing to have for resource anyway. I'm sure it would take me a while to learn stitches, especially to learn how to do them as nice as you do! Grin

Oh, by the way...What is a "bubble hem"?  Huh I'm not new to sewing but I don't know that term.

as far as i know, its just making the bottom by attaching it to a lining so there's no actual hem... and the skirt kinda makes a tube with itself... i have no idea how its properly done, or any of that. if you look up bubble hem on here, there's quite a few being made...

Never thought of doing that...Interesting. Would you topstitich it so it lays flat or would that take away the "bubbleness" and ruin the point?

That embroidery is gorgeous!!! What stitches did you use? I can't really make it out. And how long did it take you? What awesome talent!
