Subject: 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

In reply to: not sure what direction to take.. 's message, "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?" on Wednesday, December 11, 10:24:22am

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

    Honestly, since the BNDM's do it, if the rest of the dress has the BNDM "look" you can probably sell them on it. I don't personally see much advantage (as opposed to flat lining front/back/sleeves and then assembling), especially if you embroidered over the darts. Saves a little time, but not that much. I really dislike leaving more places for the embroidery to snag, but might be over thinking it. If it sounds worthwhile to you, perhaps try it on an off the rack and see how people respond.
