Embroidery

Although I haven’t yet received my naturally dyed threads from Japan, I have begun to experiment with embroidery. I am trying conventional techniques, but executing them in a less refined/constrained manner with thicker and less even thread. This piece of organza embroidery references a botanical illustration by Maud H. Purdy. am currently developing an illustration for a dress which mirror’s the same flower’s form.
