Warm weather is the perfect time to prepare our summer t-shirt. The AcuDesign APP by Janome offers two neck embroideries in the ‘Decorative’ section: Decor 01 and Decor 02. These embroideries can be embroidered directly onto a t-shirt or onto organza fabric and then applied as an applique to the t-shirt.
From the AcuDesign application on the iPad, I sent the design to my computer to print the template and get accurate positioning on the t-shirt.
Since the fabric is ultra thin, the use of non-slip strips has kept the two layers of organza in place in addition to the magnets of the hoop. These tapes can be purchased from your authorized Janome dealer – see below.
When the fabric is secure, it is ready to be embroidered. The stabilizer to be used is that which is soluble and adhesive.
#1: Fabric Place # 2: Back of Fabric with Stabilizer # 3: Fabric Sealer for All around the embroidery.
When the entire edge has been sealed and is dry, the next step is to cut the pattern all the way around and then plunge it into warm water to dissolve the stabilizer.

And here is a top enhanced with an organza neckline. It can simply be layered for a jewel effect or fixed with tacking stitches or embroidered directly on the top.
