running stitch for decoration

I'm making my favorite dress pattern for the fourth time, and this image caught my attention.

borrowed from internet

So, this is my version:  a print dress with a wide, matching band at the bottom, with running stitches.

I'm content with mine, but can really appreciate the steady hand of whoever stitched the other one. Or should I say, steady eye!

The neck edge is next, then the sleeves. They're short, but I'm hoping I can make extensions on the sleeves with the gold fabric, and maybe more stitching.


  1. I like that stitch and you did a good job! That other one could have been done by machine.

  2. Very nice! I like the running stitch detail. Your stitching looks very neat to me.

  3. Very effective. You could do a matching bag too

  4. So much encouragement! Thank you!!

  5. What nice work! How very ambitious!
