Don’t miss issue 90 – our celebratory Rainbow Issue – featuring a gorgeous array of designs in a stunning spectrum of colours. Several of our most well known and loved contributors from over the years were invited to each create a special dress in celebration of this milestone.

There’s something for everyone… from a striking square yoke dress with sumptuous embroidery, and a vibrant halter neck dress, to a graceful A-line dress with smocked and beaded bodice and matching dainty purse. Smockers will love the easy care wrap style dress as well as the adorable crisp silk dupion dress for toddlers and a simply stunning dress in indigo silk satin with smocked bodice. Little princesses will happily parade a beautiful party dress with puffed sleeves and for that very special occasion, an exquisite dress sprinkled with glistening crystal beads.

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 kit sets to help re-create each project.
