Large-scale embroidery on sheer fabric embellished with crystals.

I’d never in a million years make a dress like this (because where would I wear it?) but the beautiful, ethereal fabrics, embroidery designs and embellishment placement are so inspiring. I’ve dreamt up six different embroidered and embellished projects already.

What techniques do you combine with your embroidery?
