Subject: What are your thoughts on embroidering through the bodice lining of your costumes? I currently don't but it appears that more and more of the BNDM's are doing this and it's not being questioned by customers. It would definitely make finishing necklines a lot easier but I'm not sure if this is something a lot of SNDM are doing also? Has anyone had any customer feedback on this?

not sure what direction to take..

I think it looks messy, and gives even more places to snag the embroidery. Not a fan. I guess it could make alterations a bit easier, but it doesn't seem worthwhile to me. Most of my customers would probably flip, they often look go to a SNDM for higher quality in addition to lower prices (the first is understandable, the second has been discussed a few weeks ago... lol).

Why would it make finishing necklines easier? (NT)?Wednesday, December 11, 05:23:58pm

I've always embroidered through the lining, and I don't clip curved seams any more either. Much easier for alterations, and anyone buying a dress always asks about letout/letdown allowances, and this method makes it really easy to see straight away. No hidden clipped seams that make letout impossible. I've never once had a single complaint (NT).Wednesday, December 11, 08:06:05pm

Yes, I too keep my seams exposed for easier alterations just not sure about embroidering through the lining. Has anyone had clients comment on any SNDM's doing this? We all know there's a double standard of what is and isn't acceptable, just don't want to add to the pot. (NT):)Wednesday, December 11, 10:23:56pm

I finish /line my dresses so they are as nice in as they are out. (NT)I dont get the messy thing, at all.Thursday, December 12, 01:42:26pm

Embroidery through the lining is just a lazy man's way of doing the job. I have too much respect for my workmanship to ever consider doing this. I like the finish on my dresses to be neat and tidy inside and out. (NT)sequin queenSunday, December 15, 11:40:52am

Why do you think that if my seams are finished neatly the customer can not see the seams? I do not pocked line my dresses I do a flat lining and seams are finished neatly with extra for let out and let down. Solo dresses are expensive and I like to finish mine to the highest standard.

celtic star line their dresses after embroidery meaning its comfortable. i know other bndm do too but most dont. (NT)maybe its to stop excess material gathering on insideTuesday, December 17, 07:13:53pm

One plus side is when/if embroidry snags on the outside of the dress as it did on ours once. It is super easy to go inside the dress and pull the loose thread through to the back making the front good again. If there was a seperate lining covering the back of the embroidery, we could not have done this. Plus it was never a problem and I felt, less bulk on inside of dress.
