Hand Embroidered Resort Couture Inspired by the Sea
Mooshi has been busy working on a new tambour embroidery project inspired by the tropical waters of a seaside resort!
The project is a babydoll style sleeveless cotton blouse with a hand embroidered yoke.
The design for the yoke features an underwater scene made of tambour beading, silk ribbon work and a beaded quilt applique on a background of hand painted silk organza. Mixed media of gold and silver metallic threads, transparent ombre blue paillettes, wood and glass beads, Swarovski pearls, silk and organza ribbons and real sea shells bring an abundant underwater world to life. Above the sun drenched shallows a fisherman’s net floats on the surface with a catch of glistening pearls.
It’s still a work-in-progress but almost finished. Look out for a post on the finished piece soon.
