DIY (embroidery)




Embroidery is all about the details. By definition it is the handicraft of decorationg fabric (and sometimes other materials but personally to me it seems to be something else) with a needle or tread. In Croatia there is a long tradition of embroidery, the finest kind is know as zlatovez (golden emboridery). 

I myself have been doing embroidery for years and I'm more or less selftaught. Seeing my grandmother do it, inspired me to try. My mum is also good at it, but she cannot draw so she must rely on a some kind design or ask someone to draw the design on the clothes for  her to fill in. As I said, emboridery is all about the details and a wonderful way to make your clothes look artistic and rich. However, embroidery is quite time consuming and it does require some skill. I usually do it when I'm in bed watching television because I just cannot bear to have my hand idle....

The photographs are of dress that I will hopefully show to you soon ( it's almost completed).

  6. As I've said before, I'm beginning to build a picture of you as someone who always has busy, creative hands. Your embroidery here reminds of a blouse I have that was hand made and embroidered with yellow flowers by a dear relative of my Grandmother's. I didn't meet Liduska, but I've seen photos of her at my parents' wedding and I like to think of her busy fingers when I wear the blouse she made.

  8. I'm again really impressed regarding your many skills, dear Ivana! Because I have to admit that I don't have the patience for embroidery and I think further I'm not careful enough for doing that ...

    Now I'm looking forward for your post with the finished dress!
