I used a green embossed double knit with just a little stretch, a row of sequins at her waist and both the skirt and top have snap closures.

Both tops are made with cotton fabric from my stash. Both pieces were too short to cut the back from one length so there is a join at the back waist.
The pattern says to insert a back zipper which I did for the bird fabric, but after trying it on I decided I didn't need a zip for the fox fabric version.
I tried using bias binding instead of facings in the first version but didn't get it to sit quite right. So the fox fabric version has a neckline facing as per pattern instructions.

I have two cutwork embroidery cards for the Janome memory craft 5700.
Memory card no. 107 cutwork designs
Memory card no. 29 cutwork series
Today I tried a small design from card 29.
The sample used a lightweight cotton fabric with one layer of water soluble film. The bobin thread was ordinary sewing thread and the needle thread was ordinary machine embroidery rayon.
