You say Applique, I say Appliqué!While back home I had hoped that my sister & I could get down to some more making but seeing people & other bits got in the way. However we did get to do some appliqué to a dress that Big Sis had already made.
Big Sis had made up this very cute navy & white dot dress from one of our mother's 60's patterns but it seemed to be lacking a little something. We thought that it would be fun to add some appliqué circles of differing colours & patterns to the neckline.
According to Wikipedia, in its broadest sense, appliqué is a smaller ornament or device applied to another surface. The word appliqué is a french word that, in this context, means "that has been applied". In the context of sewing, appliqué refers a needlework technique in which pieces of fabric, embroidery, or other materials are sewn onto another piece of fabric to create designs, patters or pictures.
I've had a bit of a go at appliqué before, adding it to some kids clothes that I had made & I quite liked the process. Especially when I found out the visoflex trick!!!
ps: big sorry about the pics - the lighting wasn't quite right.
