"Bevy of Bows"
Pattern:  Children's Corner "Marilyn", view B was used for this beautiful springtime dress with shadowworked bows on the front bodice & sleeves
Design Plate:  We used Laura Jenkins Thompson's embroidery leaflet "Bevy of Bows" as the source for our shadow work designs
Materials Used:  This garment was constructed entirely of Linen Batiste from Spechler/Vogel.  The contrasting band of pink was attached to the underside using Madiera Applique techniques with pinstitching.  Floche #776 (pink) was used for the shadow embroidery.
Alternative Ideas:  Any lightweight white fabric suitable for shadow embroidery could be used for the dress.   The contrasting bands can be any color or fabric depending on the shadowing effect you desire.
