Wearing Trendy Embellished Dresses for Winter 2011
You can embellish any clothing pieces—from casual duds to party clothes to office attire to embellished dresses. Cut out clothing you already have in your closet. You can start with plain clothing pieces like denim jeans and jackets, tshirts, simple black dresses and basic solid-color skirts and make these garments the canvas for your creativity. You may rarely use a needle and thread to sew anything more than a button, but you can create any style of embellishments with very simple sewing skills.
If you’re planning to go for DIY embellished dresses this winter season, here are the things you can do to explore your creativity:
• Sew beads and sequins to any garment you wish or add lace, ribbons or anything from a scarf to a robe. • Cut flower designs or prints from flower-patterned fabric, and then sew or glue them
onto your clothes. • Cover up a stain with an appliqué, with a group of sequins or decorative buttons, as you would use a brooch. • Patch holes with your favorite scrap of vintage fabric or with a woven or braided section of colorful ribbons. • Decorate jeans or dark fabric in patterns with a bleach pen. • Attach fringe or decorative braid or ribbon to the hem of a skirt or dress.
