Nathalie Dentzer set us a new challenge for the “Think Broderie” of 2015. We had a model, an extract of the “Revue de Mode”, a lady magazine of 1885. I love the fact it’s so old, that we just do what hundreds of stitchers have done before. However here the challenge for me was to stitch in a way my ancestors wouldn’t have.

And knit was really the appropriate fabric for it. I’m in the middle of a process of experimenting a lot with the reverse-applique technique, trying to see how I can play with it, so the timing was perfect. I chose two very different fabrics a medium organic one for the top and a light half knit half tencel for the bottom. So the contrast is not in colour but in weight too. I then added stitched with 2 threads remembering the fabrics and beads.

Hope you like it !

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
