Australian Smocking and Embroidery issue 95 is filled with flowers and hearts to fill your sewing room with love while you stitch.
There are eight projects for you to create, including sweet baby kimonos, floral dresses for tea parties, a dainty silk heartshaped keepsake and an adult’s nightgown.
Along with the regular features of letters to the editor, readers’ stories and a beautiful photo gallery, we introduce you to a new series called ‘A Stitch in Time’, by Kris Curtis, featuring delightful clothing and accessories inspired by vintage designs.
It is quite astonishing to discover that the style of many popular baby garments originated many decades, if not centuries, ago.
Kris is a vintage pattern addict and she is using her wealth of enthusiasm, knowledge and huge vintage collection to re-create a wide range of enchanting projects, offering both a traditional and contemporary take on each garment.
