Embroidery expert Lisa B. Ross has some tips for those new to advanced embroidered cardigans.
Look for black and white embroideries that don’t have any stripes.
If the design is in black and you see a red stripe, it’s probably a black stripe embroiderie.
Don’t buy embroideried sweaters or jeans that are too tight.
If you don’t want to wear your sweater to the office, it may be a good idea to buy an extra size or two.
Don ‘t buy embroidered tees or sweaters with stripes.
Black stripes are a no-no.
If your pattern is a pattern or patterned fabric, go with something more durable.
If there is a white stripe on the front, it is likely a white embroidered pattern.
Don t buy patterns that have no stripes.
A pattern is just a fabric that has been patterned.
If it has stripes, it probably isn’t a pattern.
You may have to cut the pattern in half to see the pattern.
Make sure the front is plain, like a shirt.
A white shirt will have a plain front, but a black shirt with stripes will have an embroidered back.
The front of a shirt with striped patterns is also called a “stripe-front” shirt.
Don’t try to make a pattern out of scraps.
A shirt with a stripe on it will look like an open-ended sweater.
A plain shirt with white stripes on it won’t have stripes.
The shirt with no stripes won’t look like a sweater.
The most common embroidering patterns are simple stripes with a black or white background.
You can use the same patterns for both a white shirt and a black sweater.
You may also see patterns like “stitched in black” and “stitching in white.”
These are often called “striped patterns.”
A striped pattern has a white strip on it.
You’ll see striped patterns on jackets, jeans, sweatshirts, sweaters and even tees.
Some embroiderying techniques use a simple pattern and a strip on the pattern to create a more complex pattern.
You can get creative with the design of the pattern by embroider, making little details like holes in the shirt, adding a stripe, or even using a different color for the stripe.
