I have had this blue denim shirt for months, it needed some embroidery. Colors are brighter than they look and color of the shirt is blue not gray. I am pleased how it turned out. Hugs and flowers to all, Suzanna.

Now that is what I call sprucing up an ordinary denim shirt. Great job

Thank you! I thought about looking for a iron on patch of some sort but I am very happy with the embroidery.

Well done, the heavy seam at bottom of yoke, in the back embroidered beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you! I was concerned about that too, but the needle went right over it just fine.

That's a great way to spruce up a shirt! It was clever to stitch the pleat flat so the design could be big and in the prefect spot!

Thank you! I first stitched the pleat with white thread and removed the white thread after done with embroidery. Back design is aboout 5x7 and about 40,000 stitches, total stitches about 60,000.

You know Suzanna, I’ve got a shirt very similar- it was Trev’s which he gave me as he knows I love light blue. Of course it buttons up differently, but seeing yours inspires me to try something like yours. Yours is fantastic!! Love Chris

Thank you! I bought 3 of the shirts, of course on sale. I will keep my first and complete the others later this year. I am touched you said I inspire you because that is what you do to me. I look forward to seeing yours.

Beautiful design and love how it looks on that denim and your placement of everything. I need to get more energetic. Things get embroidered for other people in my household and never do my own stuff. Great job. Have a blessed and healthful Happy New Year!

I know what you mean. I have very little embroidery for my own. I thought about giving for a gift but I really like it, so it is mine.
