Embroidered cloth is an ideal craft for any creative individual. Designers can apply their unique skills to create unique items using this material. This craft is also popular with vintage enthusiasts and collectors. Many people enjoy wearing vintage pieces of clothing embellished with detailed embroidery. Popular designs include ducks, flowers and landscapes. For example, a 1950s autumn forest scene might include a deer frozen in mid-jump. Outlining the history of embroidered clothing, Joan Avery writes that this craft became popular in the 19th century. She attributes this surge in fashion to Queen Victoria's wedding in 1858. Embroidery was so popular that the machine age didn't kill it off. Instead, it gave us an alternative way to use expensive material for practical purposes.
Embroidered cloth is usually produced by machine or by hand-crafting letters onto a piece of cloth with a needle and thread. The most common type of embroidery is on a plain-colored base fabric. A popular embroidered motif is a duck with its large, bright red eyes highlighted by white pupils. Other popular designs include flowers, landscapes and textiles related to history or culture.
Popular colors for girls' blouses include pink, yellow and white. Embroidered clothing is also available in many different styles such as v-neck, crew, collarless or vintage styles. Shirts can be fully or partially lined for added warmth or added stretch to the design's visibility. For example, fully lined shirts will show off the embroidery best while eliminating the base fabric's imperfections.
Embroidered clothing is an ideal craft for creative individuals because it uses expensive material to create unique fashion designs. Kids can wear these pieces with pride knowing they're wearing vintage items that have been customized by their parents or grandparents. A bright red cotton blouse with a white base highlights the bird's eyes in the design.
