A line of Detached Chain

When you make a long seal down stitch on the Detached Chain it opens up other possibilities for making patterns with them…the thread I used on this seam is Ribbon Floss

Another thing that you can do with Detached Chain Stitch is to make the seal down stitch long which gives a whole different look to the stitch.
Detached Chain Seam before adding beads

I photographed this seam before adding the beads to show how the detail of adding the beads adds a lot to the overall look of the seam…The thread is Silk Buttonhole Twist.
