Couture Embellishments class at West Valley College continues.
Assignment was to embellish printed fabric and lace fabric with beads and sequins. Also to use shells for
Embellishment. Didn’t have any, used washers and bolts for a hem treatment.
Embellished jeans: opened side seam so I have room to work. Next step was couching the crochet cotton
lines onto the jeans. Couching the vines was a big part of the project, labor and time intensive.
