About this title


The art of embroidery on sheer and transparent fabrics provides an opportunity for creativity and experimentation, in terms of both materials and design. This book allows the reader to make the most of the wide range of gauze and soluble fabrics available today and of increasingly sophisticated sewing machine capabilities. The author explains the basics of embroidering on sheer and transparent fabrics, incorporating hand and machine techniques. Starting with basic floral and landscape designs and moving on to more detailed projects, beginners are encouraged to build up their skills gradually and gain expertise with confidence. Layering fabrics, shadow work and shadow quilting are covered in detail, with the emphasis on geometric and linear designs. Sections on applique and reverse applique then provide a helpful stepping stone to tonal effects; these are supplemented by further chapters on pleating, folding and weaving. Machine techniques such as pulled effects, using special needles and learning how to sew on soluble fabrics will expand the embroiderer's repertoire before she moves on to the projects for panels, lampshades and clothes.
