This week in China there was a fashion show for garments decorated with Chinese embroidery. Their embroidery is hand-made using many different types of silk threads. This particular fashion show was for a type of embroidery called 'Suzhou', which was developed in Suzhou, China, more than 2000 years ago. I like how they were able to incorporate embroidery into the garments without making them look too much over-the-top.
It's amazing how much time and dedication they put towards making the embroidery. Most of the Suzhou embroidery art features flowers and birds.
My sewing machine doesn't have embroidery features, but I wonder how much decoration can be done using modern sewing machines. If done right, the embroidery can really make a garment stand out.
Hope you're all having a wonderful week. Happy sewing!!
