Let's take a short look at the production process for our embroidery line.
Cutting of the Dress
Each dress style has its own pattern draft. Once the dress to be sewn is stated, the tailor cut the fabric using the style pattern and passes the pieces of the fabric that need embroidery work to the embroidery tailor.
Sketching of the pattern
The embroidery tailors sketch the framework/outline of the design to be sewn on the fabric on sticky paper. The paper acts as a guide for the tailor to prevent errors and promote the neatness of the work. The designs are done based on the style and pattern of the dress.
Hot PressingThe Sketch Framework/Outline To Fabric
The sketched framework/outline is then ironed onto the back of the fabric at the exact position the design would be sewn.
Sewing the Framework/Outline Of The Pattern
The framework/outline is sewn to the fabric from the back with the sticky paper still attached to ensure accuracy. This outline will give the main design of the embroidery work at the front oh the fabric.
Freehand Pattern Detailing
The intricate details that go into the framework/outline of the designs are completely freehand. To complete the embroidery work on each outfit takes a total of two days. The dedication to each outfit is second to none.
Sewing of the Outfit
Once the embroidery work on the dress is completed, it is then passed back to the tailor to sew the dress. This takes another day before the dress is finally completed after passing through quality control for approval.
It is a long process, three whooping days but the outcome is always breathtaking.
Get your hands on any of our dresses from the embroidery line and you would definitely not stop talking about it.
