My sister wants me to embroider some whitework rose designs on a chambray shirt. Now that I'm looking, I can't find very many designs for her to choose. Can any rose design be used for whitework?

Ace Points also has beautiful whitework. Do a google search for Ace Points, within their site do a search for white work. Good Luck. Please post a picture of your finished design.

You want a design with lots of 3-D to the stitches, as it will be all one color. Check out Designer Roses and Designer Roses II Fashion sets by Anita Goodesign. These are an awesome stitchout.

I think she meant from rescuer. This is all new to me. Learned something again.

You can look on a search engine for "white work" or "whitework" in the images section of the search results.
White work is more than the color of the thread. It is a technique with a certain end result. I found many rose designs (done in white work) when I searched just now. It is one of my favorite techniques. Some embroidery sites may have white work listed but show designs in pink or... The color doesn't matter, it is the end result that makes it beautiful.

I hope this website doesn't break any copyright/licensing laws... https://www.needlenthread.com/201...
It shows the white work done by hand with explanations about the end result. Using a machine to do it, means using thicker threads and more of a cotton look too.
