This is what I've decided to do for the bodice of Miss J's dress. This is the dress that has the Boutis technique on the bottom of the skirt. I had a piece of yellow linen from which I drew threads horizontally and vertically. I then used blue embroidery thread to make the design through the loose threads. I have done a Madeira applique technique to insert it into the bodice. I am going to use the yellow for a sash and as piping around the neckline and the sleeve cuffs. Miss J said she wanted either a sky blue dress, an Easter egg yellow dress, or a faded pink dress. I love blue and yellow together, so I decided to use her first two choices together.With the light from the window showing through the open drawn work.
