My chemise for the competition was made from a very lightweight linen I found on sale online. The pattern used was Margo Anderson's low neck smock pattern. After sewing what feels like a hundred of these, I wanted to do something a little different to help it stand out a little bit. The embroidery on the neckline, sleeves, hem and french seams were all machine done.
The cuffs were smocked, inspired by an existing chemise seen in Moda a Firenze. The cuffs were then embroidered and trimmed in lace to match the neckline.
