You can also embroider these dresses on fabric, using only the outline of the design.

Hoop a layer of watersoluble stabilizer with a layer of non-raveling fabric. On the photo below we showed that we hooped a layer of stabilizer, and placed a layer of silver light-weight nylon and a layer of shimmering organza on the stabilizer, as if embroidering applique.
