Description of Wedding Dress Heart 2
Wedding Dress Heart 2 has a lacy pulled thread collar and sleeves, stitched in white pearl cotton with a pale blue green silk as a shadow and a hint of silver Kreinik braid, plus a favorite pale flesh color floss. At its widest and longest points, the heart is approximately 4.5" on an 8" x 8" white piece of congress cloth.
The pearl and 'diamond' necklace is comprised of round and almost round pearls plus round and marquise vintage 'diamond' montees (glass set in metal). The necklace 'chain' is made of small oval pearls and two sizes of silver seed beads.
The instructions are 20 pages long plus a title page and a color copy of the finished heart.
The instructions booklet does not include instructions for assembling the heart (I leave that job to a professional finisher).
Description of Tuxedo Heart 2
Tuxedo Heart is also stitched on a white 8" square of congress cloth. Please note, the outlines for the two hearts are the same and they can be assembled back to back if you so wish.
The kit includes three colors of Soie d'Alger silk, two flosses, one pearl cotton and one Kreinik braid, plus red and green silk ribbon. The kit also includes 5 little round pearls for buttons down the shirt placket.
At its widest and longest points, the heart is approximately 4.5".
The instructions are 16 pages long plus a title page and a color copy of the finished heart.
The pattern does not include assembling instructions, nor does the kit include finishing supplies. I always send my hearts to a professional finisher.
Idea to Personalize the Hearts
I don't finish my own hearts. I am not a great seamstress so I send my hearts to a professional finisher. She backs the hearts with silk.
Instead of silk, stitch the outline on a piece of congress cloth and personalize the heart with the bride and groom's names, with the wedding date and with love from you.
History of Tuxedo and Wedding Dress Hearts
Many years ago I had the idea for making 'bodice hearts' because of a Tuxedo Heart candy box at Sees many Valentines Days ago.
These are two of my most frequently requested designs, so I am bringing them back yet again. I made only a limited number of the kits because I have sold them so often, but I know a number of you out there in stitcherland will be disappointed if I don't offer them. Here they are.
