Love: Sailor girl skirt
stitched by CassieBelts
It wasn't enough for Cassie to stitch 3 fabulous hand-drawn sailor girls - she also stitched them on a skirt. Cassie is looking pretty fabulously sailor-girl, herself!
I love what Cassie has to say on her blog about working on this project:
My favorite thing about working on this dress, aside from being done with it, was the people I met while working on it. I only work on embroidery while traveling. It gives me something to do in the car or on the plane. On a recent trip out to California, I took my embroidery and met two truly delightful women. Both were so excited when I took my work out. They had both embroidered in the past, one even worked as an embroidery designer in New York, and both lived during World War II. It was such a delight hearing their stories and receiving letters from them upon my return home.
Visit her blog to see more embroidered sailor girls and read about her process. Amazing stitching, Cassie! :)
