Karen’s Fantasy Darning

Karen Barbé darned a prominent rip in her dress and then disguised the repair with embroidery. So beautiful!!

She wrote:

For mending this dress I have used traditional darning techniques as well as embroidery stitches (cross-stitch and running stitch). It was hard to decide how to do it because the rip was in such a conspicuous spot so I went for this “fantasy darning”, a mix of things. I didn’t want it to look too patched nor to show it’s actually mended. Now the sad thing is I have just found another rip next to the hem. Damn, this dress is disintegrating!”
