Description
A fascinating collection of floral patterns and step-by-step instruction to create 15 authentic embroidery projects, drawn from the pages of the ‘Lady’s Magazine’, c.1770s-1810s. Rare survivals of the era, the patterns have been thoughtfully adapted to provide instruction for modern stitchers, elegantly combined with 21st-century utility. Create a Regency-style reticule, embellish napkins, sew a beaded pencil case, mobile phone pouch, or tablet sleeve. Charming projects are set into historical context and the book includes evocative quotations from Jane Austen’s (1775-1817) novels, which often referenced needlework as a sociable craft of the era and delighted in descriptions of hand-made clothes and accessories. Graded from beginner to advanced, with useful sections on getting started, techniques and tips.
