Ladies, I'm making a second "mu-mu" or house dress for hot weather, and I want to use these same embroidery designs that I used on my first one (different colors, of course). I have been SEARCHING, but I cannot locate them. They are 2" tall. I'm not sure how this photo will turn out, since I had to reduce its size a lot. I'm pretty sure they are not from Martha's IECs, but I could be wrong. Thank you for any help you can give me!

I FOUND THEM!!! I had them filed as "Flowers", subcategory "Daisies." The 2" size is Atg 1209 and a smaller one Atg 1211. Atg=Ann the Gran. However, I can't find them on her current website. I really like the result of the rather wildly contrasting colors in each flower, the way I did them. I usually do much more subdued embroidery, but these were perfect with the striped seersucker fabric and a totally casual garment.

My next garment will have slightly larger white and banana-yellow stripes. I'll probably green and orange thread along with the white and yellow. Since I accidentally cut two front and back yokes, I will self-line the dress, rather than using Martha's favorite batiste, which I used for my first one.

Pretty flowers, glad you found them. That will be another ideal garment for the hot weather, cool, comfortable, and attractive.

I would love to see the "whole" dress. What pattern do you use. I live in the south where it is "Hot". I could use a dress that is cool.
