Inside this beautiful edition, readers will uncover a lifetime of inspiration while creating something special for children of all ages. There’s something for everyone, including two delightful shell pink damask dresses (one with matching bolero), a classic square yoke dress for pre-schoolers, a sweet daisy dress with a fully smocked bodice and a charming gown in fine broderie anglaise for older girls.
Smockers will also enjoy recreating a delicate baby girl’s dress in ivory batiste and a beautiful voile baby daygown and petticoat with heirloom detailing. For something a little different, an adorable knit top with smocked yoke and an enchanting journal cover with glistening beaded flowers are also included.
These projects, as well as readers’ letters, photographs and stories, add up to an exceptional issue that should not be missed. Each issue of Australian Smocking & Embroidery treats the reader to world-class photography, full-sized pattern sheets, complete instructions and ready-to-stitch kits to recreate each project.
