Fashion DIY: Spice Up A Wool Dress With Embroidered Chains From Wool

I have a friend who never wears black. But one day she needed a black dress and rather than borrow one, she bought extra for this one need a cheap dress. The wool dress ended up (thankfully!) to me and I could keep it.

And because I already have enough black clothes, this was spiced up a bit. The idea comes from a Fornarina-wool sweater of last year, which unfortunately at Asos I could not get in my size.

DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions

DIY Step 1

With the marker draw your pattern on the dress, do not press too hard.

DIY Step 2

Thread the wool needle.

DIY Step 3

Embroider with the wool the pre-drawn patterns. To give the embroidered “chain” a realistic look, I have also stitched three large pendants (hearts, clubs, flower).

Here you see the large chain only. You can either leave it or embroider a further chain (like mine, which is a little bit smaller).
