I've made simplicity 2629 (the lower white gown) in a pale pink silk.
But it looks so plain, I didn't do the embroidery as per the pattern, but it really needs something to enhance it.
Any suggestions? I do have an embroidery machine. I don't want it to be too over the top, but still have a nice elegant look to it. I also have a lot of the fabric left over.

While I can't suggest a specific design, this site has lots that would be appropriate:

I love decorating things like this with heirloom sewing techniques, either lace or decorative stitches (if your machine has them). Martha Pullen is a huge inspiration for me.

Thanks ladies, I'll have a look. It really just needs something in the middle of the chest, to break it up a bit.
I have never seen either of those websites, but there are soem beautiful designs! Thanks ladies.

Without too much work or time, you could put a row of hand-worked feather stitch down each of those little tucks.

Here's another idea: featherstitch and roses at the center of the neckline.

that was basically what I was supposed to do per the pattern Elona lol, I'm wishing I'd done it now, though having said that, I am not a hand stitch girl at all
