'Removing' embroidery from cotton dress

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

Just a quick question. I recently bought a black cotton summer dress which has floral embroidery on it. Not a lot, just an area near the bottom. Anyway, I'm not too keen on the colours and was thinking of trying to 'erase' the pattern by going over the sections with a black fabric marker so that the embroidery just appears black. Is this a totally silly idea? Do you think it would fade or wash out or look strange in any way? My other option was to unpick it all but then I think I would weaken the fabric - there is no backing on the embroidery, its just sewn straight onto the cotton of the dress.

Any advice???


Thanks :)
