[Textiles: Anatomy] Applique onto Nylon, 09/16

As the technique applique has worked effectively and successfully throughout this project I wanted to see how cotton would applique onto nylon. The results really surprised me, as a previous free machine embroidery sample puckered  when using nylon I thought it would done the same thing for these pieces. The nylon bunched a little on one of the samples but excluding that mistake I feel they’ve resulted really well. I like the look of the solid coloured organs appliqued onto the sheer, nude nylon, it draws attention to the organ shapes but still compliments the fleshy fabric.
