I am sure there is a name for this procedure but I haven't a clue what to call it... Ordinarily I embroider the critters and trim extremely close to them and applique it on the patch... Here are a few BEFORE I trim them close
I can stitch on this now because the jacket is under construction and I can tote Kathy's block with me. I really want to get it done before I leave.
In my eagerness to start my jacket I neglected to make a sample of the pattern to make sure it fit... I did that very thing today and luckily it does fit... I wasn't even sure what size of pattern to buy. Patterns used to run large but the the whole sizing for women has changed so much and it has been so many years since I've sewn from a pattern... To compound the problem I'm not even sure what size I am. Over the last year I have gradually lost 35 pounds but still wear the same fat clothes.
Because I am under-tall, I shortened the garment a LOT... The front edge is at an angle because it laps across.
I am still working out how I'll do the lace sleeves. I can always use it as a vest if it doesn't work.. I always try to have a backup plan... Much of my lift has been the backup plan......
