Thanks!! Good question, BobeeKay... I don't wear it much because I'm a little afraid of washing it, or sending it to a drycleaner who may crush the velvet (that's happened to me before, with a different item). But Christmas morning would be just the sort of time to wear it.

BriarRose, thanks, that's good to know! In this case it seemed sufficient to work from the back and periodically check that the embroidery was looking good on the front. But it definitely seems that it would be useful to have the design on the front in many cases.

"I'm not sure how I could have transferred the design directly to the front side of the velour so that it would be visible and not damage the nap." Since you already have the pattern drawn on the lingin,you are halfway there. Simply use a single strand of embroidery floss and a running stitch to transfer those design lines to the front of the garment. If you use design colors to do the tracing you won't even have to remove the thread tracing.

Oh, WOW, Margaret, this is absolutely STUNNING, and you wear it SO WELL! I LOVE the fabric you chose, and that EMBROIDERY -- Well, I've never seen anything like it. :o) GORGEOUS! I'm so out of the loop, lately, I'm trying to get caught up with some of my "favorites." :o)
