These design pieces are quite beautiful, there is also a fantastic Australian applique designer,Stewart Merrett.He has produced a book called Applique Art and it details techniques to produce your own designs. He produces commissioned works and many are exquisite.

that is amazing, gius!
I loved all the samples you posted.. they do look a lot more simpler than they actually are when you try to replicate them but it's definitely worth a try..

you can also add stuffing underneath the cut-outs of fabric to give a relief or quilted effect. some people also put cord underneath and stitch around the cord (called "cording").

ie. Comme des Garcons

thanks for the suggestion jezenya !

I have this book that was reprinted from the 20's and it covers all kinds of surface decoration that you can do with a straight stitch sewing machine. It's absolutely breathtaking. I'll scan some examples.

oh yes just figured out it may be only for german and french ...

too bad. i'm sorry.

no it's not the same videos ...

in this video only the grandson of Mme Lemariť talked about Lemariť history and feathers. I thought it would be interesting (coz I thought it wasn't a House we talked a lot about in comparison to Lessage etc.) but if some videos already existed ... it's ok, i guess ...

p.s : the videos you posted cannot be viewed outside youtube

I meant to post only the links to the videos
tFS automatically turns them into videos.. but if you click the videos themselves, it will take you to the clip on youtube

Maybe you can give us an explanation yourself then? the House
since the show you talk about is in French anyways.. I read French better than I listen/speak

I don't know much about LeSage even, to be honest
plus the difference it is as a maison



Looking very much forward to those scans, educo! :p
