Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
A little while ago, I wrote about London-based embroidery studio Hawthorne and Heaney on a blog post about beautiful embroidery.
Yesterday I spotted that they had posted this photo album on Facebook stating they were working on a fully embroidered couture ballgown from start to finish. This post was accompanied by some amazing photos of progress so far, as you’ll see in the photo album. Here are a few that document the sheer beauty of what they’re producing:
The detail is incredible – it definitely puts my attempt at some very basic embroidery into perspective! Not that I would expect to be embroidering to this skill level – H&H have over 15 years of experience under their belts – so I’m not being too hard on myself. This is breath-taking stuff though, whoever is the recipient of this dress is one lucky lady.
I’m really excited to watch this project progress. I for one will be following the photos on Facebook and I highly recommend following them yourselves to watch the garment take shape.
