    so i just did some measuring and the skirt hem i wanna embroider is 6.75m long (a little over 22ft). That means that the panel i wanna do, which is 25cm long if I include a little bit of separation space between the panels i gotta do 27 panels

    rip my wrist?

    Does anyone have any tips for idiots like me who wanna find out why handembroidered anything is so expensive

    My only real advice is to not get overwhelmed, and to plan on it taking a long time.

    If you can, figure out what the longest period of time you can comfortably embroider for is. For me, it's about half an hour, but I have kinda janky hands and wrists from larping. Set aside a period of time for it every day you can, and make it part of your routine. Get a rough idea of how much you can embroider in that time, and plan out about how long this is going to take.
