Reverse Applique Cuff

Reverse appliqué involves layering several pieces of fabric together and then cutting through each layer to expose the lower layers in a predetermined design.

Normally, Applique is based on layering fabrics up from the base, similar to getting dressed; first comes the underwear, topped by a shirt, and finally a sweater.

For Reverse Applique you start with the sweater, cut through it to see the shirt, and then cut through the shirt to see that beautiful bra you bought on a whim.

This enigmatic technique can yield surprising and inspiring results.
