Pin Up Embroidery: Girls #6 & #7

It's been a while since I gave you a Pin Up Embroidery update, so here's a special bumper addition for you, two completed girls!

First up we have Scarlet's identical twin, Sherry:

Sherry in spots

I went a bit crazy with all her spots :) she has the cutest bolero decorated with french knots and then I used split stitch for the larger spots on her dress.

I really like this Pin Up, I think she's fun and a little bit like a circus performer in her spotty outfit. She's bringing some circus-chic to the proceedings :)

The sixth Pin Up is completed!

And now for Pin Up number seven, Marilyn's sister, Maddie!

Maddie, also a minx!

I kept things simple with Maddie, just giving her a cute stripey outfit, it reminds me of a bathing costume. I'd love to have a version of this outfit for myself!

I also really love the colours of this outfit, the lilac with the golden stripes, it works really nicely. Plus she - of course - has perfectly matching shoes! I would love to be able to match every one of my outfits with my shoes...

Number seven done and only one more to go!

And there you have it. I have completed seven out of eight of my Pin Ups, one more and then it's time for the big reveal! I'm so excited to share the finished skirt with you, it's definitely going to be one of my favourite items of clothing I'm sure. 

Check back soon for my final Pin Up Girl and then I'll finally show you what the finished skirt looks like, I can't wait!

Bye for now :)
