Embroidery is such a hot trend this spring! Whether you are sewing a skirt from scratch or recycling one from the back of your closet, adding a touch of embroidery can create an entirely fresh look. Keep in mind this would look great on a dress too ?
DESIGNER TIP: My skirt fabric is a linen blend, but the stabilizer I am using would work great on rayon, cotton sateen, denim, wool, and cotton blends. JUST be careful with satin, silk blends, and velvet (to name a few). You don’t want to damage the fabric from the iron when pressing on the fusible stabilizer; it’s best to test the stabilizer on a swatch of fabric first.
Determine the placement for the embroidery on the skirt. I am going to focus on one side of the front of the skirt; marking that spot with a fabric pen or tailors chalk. Press the embroidery stabilizer on the wrong side of the fabric covering the area to be embroidered.
Hoop the fabric and insert the hoop into the machine. Choose an embroidery design or add a couple of designs onto the screen. Scan the fabric in and move the embroidery design as needed. If you don’t have the scanning feature on your sewing machine, use an embroidery placement marker such as the snowman or other tools.
