    Not by a gentleman....my Husband might have something to say about that!



    But by a very popular local Wedding Gown designer and maker. Ellie has commisioned some embroidery on a gown bodice which I can't wait to do. It`s a bit scary because I only get one shot at the embroidery. If it goes wrong fabric wasted!


    I`m really chuffed because this is exactly the type of stuff I want to do!

    Well done Claire. Thats really brave of you. I would be terrified of making a mistake.
    I had a lady once who wanted her ring cushion made from the same fabric as her dress. I carefully set eveything up making sure all was as it should be. When I went to take it off the machine I had managed to stitch the back to the front!!! I hadn't made sure that the fabric was free underneath the hoop!!!. I carefully unstitched it and completed it, sent it off and felt good. I got a phone call from her saying she loved it .......... but I had spelt her name wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Fortunately she was a lovely lady and forgave me, eventually I got it right and she has been back for lots more things since.

    What a nightmare! Don't you always find that once something goes wrong then other things do as well. Sure you will be fine Claire, don't listen to these horror stories!!

    I`ve been and done quite a few mistakes in the past, thankfully on nothing that could n`t be rectified. I find that if I`m in a rush I make mistakes so I`ll need to go carefully on this project and make sure there is absolutely no distractions. The gown will still be in pieces so if I have to I can go back to Ellie to have a piece re-cut but that would be rather embarrasing!


    As Penny said, the trouble is with machine embroidery is either you spend days and days unpicking or you start again!
