A fantastic use of Embird

If you’ve read my last blog post you will see that I entered the Australasian Sewing Guild competition a month ago. As well as my entries there were some fabulous other entries.. In fact all the entries in the sewing competition were fabulous. It was hard to decide which was the best. But the photos I’m including here are of a very special dress. This dress won the Daywear section. I thought that you’d like to see it as the ferns on the dress were created in Embird Studio.

And here is a close up photo of the ferns.

Aren’t they awesome? Louise Sparrow from Australia created these ferns in her Embird studio software. Silver ferns are a very New Zealand “thing” and as our brief for the competition was Natural with a Kiwi twist I think that she made a fantastic job of her dress. Not only was her dress really classy, and beautifully made but she made great use of Embird to create her version of a Kiwi Twist.

Just think what you can do with Embird when you think outside the square. Not only can you create regular embroidery designs but you can make really classy garments and embellish them like Louise did without making them look like they came out of a tourist shop. There really is no limit to what you can do……

Well done Louise. And thank you for providing me with the photos and allowing me to write about your beautiful dress.
