Description
What do the backs of such pieces really look like? Nice and neat? Knots or no knots? A big mess? On the Embroidered Jacket tour a few years ago we had behind-the-scenes access to see not only the fronts of the embroidered garments but also the backs and insides of many pieces. In this class I will present pictures of what we saw!
