Shirt embellishment (commission) – June 2014

back close-up detail front detail back detail right cuff detail cuff detailThis linen shirt was supplied by the client for me to add Union Flag detailing.
I took an image from one of my flag paintings, transferred it onto fabric and then set to work on the sewing machine. I used several different thread colours to give depth and dimension to the design, but stuck to only a couple of stitch styles as to not complicate the piece too much.
