A Dash of Paisley Elegance


It's hard to believe the designs Barbara, from Tennessee, used for this elegant turtleneck came from the casual Bandana Paisley Design Pack. But they are! And here's how she created such a striking difference using her 3D Embroidery software and Designer 1:

"The paisley design is from the "Bandana Paisley" design pack," she wrote. "I used #190483 for the center and part of #190473 for each of the sides. By doing that I was able to create a nice "V"-shaped design to fit around the turtleneck of the shirt.

Her thread choice played a large role in the design's appearance as well. She used gold and variegated gold metallic threads, touched with topaz and AB crystals for highlights.

"I was quite pleased with the results and especially like the exotic look that the Bandana Paisleys have when stitched with the metallic threads," Barbara added.

It's certainly a gorgeous and unique look. She is making these turtlenecks for her daughters. How lucky they will be to have such amazing pieces in their wardrobes.
