One of the new members brought several items for the October meeting.
This precious yellow day gown made from handkerchief linen features antique tatting and buttons. The pattern used is Pricillas' Layette from ‘The Old Fashioned Baby’ by Jeannie Baumeister.
Stuart shares this white day gown was sewn mostly by hand. She used nelona batiste, her special antique buttons and the same pattern.
To create this sweet bishop, Stuart paired Liberty of London fabric purchased at Britex Fabrics in San Francisco with the ‘Easy Bishops and Bonnets’ by Cynthia Finnerty smocking plate to Yvonne Denise’s pattern ‘Sarah’. What a perfect combination or fabric, pattern and design. Once again the antique tatting added just the right touch of daintiness.
