Embroidered Fashions

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Embroidery on clothing is hot, hot, hot!

These fashions featured at recent shows previewing the 2011 trends are no exception!

Ethnic-inspired designs, large-scale geometrics , colorful graphics and sweet florals are all being interpreted in embroidery on garments from top designers and are used as accents and bold splashes of color, or in larger scale covering a lot of fabric real estate for gorgeous fashion drama.

Embroidered designs are being featured across this year’s bodices, skirts, pants, jackets and dresses.  It’s even being featured on the humble t-shirt.

The garments shown here were worked in satin stitch and feature the popular Pantone colors that have been forecasted for Spring 2011 by Vogue Knitting.

We’ve matched them to DMC Embroidery Floss for you!

You can use Silver Penney to #353, Beeswax to #3854, Coral Rose to #3340, Honeysuckle to #349, Lavender to #340, Russet to #902, Peapod to #3851, Blue Curacao to #3844, Regatta to #796 and Silver Cloud to #3023 so you too can stitch in this year’s hottest colors.

Other thread options include colors from DMC’s Color Variations Floss line – these gorgeous, overdyed threads feature a mix of beautiful colors in every skein – or our luxurious Satin Floss (color numbers will be the same as for stranded embroidery floss).

You can find more embroidered fashions from the runways here.  Click on the individual photo to enlarge them.

These are so inspiring, it makes me want to pull a few things out of my own closet to embellish with embroidery, so I’ll be sharing some patterns soon!
