Using the Twin Needle to Fabric Doodle
Used a pattern for the basic top, but altered it quite a bit to what I wanted. When "fabric doodling", cut the pattern out at least 1 inch more than normal. The extra texture will use up fabric. Before sewing anything together, just "doodle" with your threads.
I used the twin needle and two different color threads, both still pinkish but of varying tones.
I just began "fabric doodling". Down the front I added some metallic threads tucked in the stitches.
After I was satisfied with my design, sew the top shoulder. Hem the sleeves, giving more embroidery effect. Sew the side seams, and hem the bottom. Again, more embellishment.
For the neckline, I used foldover elastic. Very easy to apply and the deep mauve set it off a bit.
Finished in no time and ready for spring!
