Linen is an ancient fiber- one that has bee n used by Europeans for thousands of years. It’s also one of my favorite fibers to wear because of its beautiful drape and how it always feels cool on your skin.
I’ve decided to embroider this lovely sage linen wrap dress in the viking style, ornamenting the seams with a variation of the herringbone stitch using a brighter blue thread.(It’s almost a flax flower blue.)
Embroidering a whole garment is new to me. I’ve only ever really done embroidery on squares and small pieces of fabric. This is going to be an exciting and fun project where I improve my skills!
