I had this idea that I wanted to do something with poppies...and i like free style embrodery, so I gave it a try... worked out really nice I think. I'm thinking about making a miniskirt with the same flowers on the bottom.

Then I have an other scarf... I mixed and matched the colors and materials and desided I wanted to make something out of those things. it became this scarf and i like it, yet there's something that is bothering me and I can't put my finger on it  Undecided
someone with an opinion??  Tongue

and last but not least I made another retro dress. I found this fabric in a second hand shop and I just had to buy it  Grin i wanted to give the dress a little extra by adding orange accents. I also took an orange zipper for that reason, but again I'm a bit doubty iff that was the right choice  Roll Eyes

and one of the fabric !

Those poppies are very intense (crazy amount of work, I'm sure)!

I like the purple pom-poms on the second scarf! Maybe it's the white lace or silver ruffle throwing it off?

That dress is so perfectly retro, in the lines, the trim, and the fabric.

Nice work all around!

That scarf with freehand poppies... I find it absolutely high class. Perfect composition and in a style that I really love. It has its place at a designer exihibition.

The second scarf is really freestyle, and a hit too. Would easily pay for it in a fashion boutique, if I was looking for a special thing as a gift or something. I agree with graverobbergirl about the silver ends though. Maybe its what should be lost for the scarf to lift.

Nice dress too. Id like to get my hands on a couple of yards of the fabric... I think that the choice of an orange zipper is perfect. A visible zipper that gives the garment a well designed touch.

Well done!

yeah well the second scarf keeps on playing in my mind. Mostly I start from 1 idea and just go from there. with that one i started from a pile of lace, satin and ribbon I had put together not knowing what exactly i wanted to do with it. At that time it looked perfect together, but now I'm wondering what's off with it... I tried leaving the satin of, but then it looked plain and not Chic. and the purple on the other hand was necessary to give it some extra spice... grr the line between off en right on top can be so thin...

also good to hear that the visible zipper does not bother people... I had my doubts if that would look unprofessional... ow and the fabric was just a coupon I dug up, so I'm afraid I don't have a clue if there even still exists any more of it

and as for the poppies: yes I spend quite some hours on that, but when I can ready see the way I want something to become, I can go for hours to get it done  Cool

The poppy scarf is adorable, and I think that design would look absolutely amazing on a skirt or dress. As for the purple scarf, I think the problem for me is the ruffle at the end. I would take it off, or you could redo it to make it super ruffly. Good job overall!

did you do the poppy embroidery by hand, or with a machine?
