One of my co-workers at the prop shop asked me to design the yoke of a jean jacket that will be embroidered by her dad as a gift for her daughter. The yoke is made of canvas mesh for needlework.

Preliminary sketches for yoke of jacket

Once a preliminary pencil sketch is approved I will work up a few color sketches, simplifying the drawing so that it can be executed with various colored embroidery floss.  The final stage will be to paint it onto the canvas mesh using the colors of the threads that Maria’s dad will be using.  I enjoy creating designs for customized clothing.
