Rhinestone Embellishing a Satin Stitches Web Style with Rhinestones Unlimited

Posted by Deborah Nelson on Fri, Aug 03, 2018 @ 14:08 PM

We asked Rhinestones Unlimited to ‘decorate’ our new Web Store Style #D12000. We created the CAD pattern, cut and then sewed the costume together, including hand-placed embroidered floral appliques that we purchased from Rhinestones Unlimited. We used six appliques Style #DIY Vinca A and Vinca B. The appliques are sometimes cut apart and placed to create the look we want. This particular style is our favorite from Rhinestones Unlimited.

We don’t have a tally or cost for the actual Swarovski rhinestones that are used. We recommend that you order this costume plain, and do your own rhinestone embellishment. Or, custom order the embellishment from Satin Stitches, based on your needs.
