chebe: (GirlDayDreaming)

I've been working on this piece of embroidery for a while. Mostly I just didn't have the time to work on it, but also at times I've been quite stumped on what to do. I mean, you don't see many people, or patterned dresses, in embroidery, how was I supposed to stitch it?

I settled on outline for the girl, and chain-stitch for a knit dress. (A knit dress, why? Because it has to be, don't you think?) But, I'm kinda stumped again. There are plenty of 'empty' spaces left in the piece. Some I've tried to fill in, but ended up just pulling the stitches out again. I'm not sure, but I think the balance sorta works.

So now that the preamble is out of the way. This piece is going to be part of a larger piece, which for the time-being will remain a secret. For the record, I found Tara's version after I'd started mine, so any similarity in colouring is just happy coincidence. I give you, Tara McPherson's Unicorn Girl (via Sublime Stitching).
