I was given a silk piano shawl possibly dating from the s to Unfortunately it is badly torn and the fringes all tangled up but it has beautiful embroidery. It just requires a lot of patience. But what do I do about the tears and the fabric is so fragile that the even with careful handling it tears? Wondering how I can fix it, I did some research into the history of the piano shawl. Many were imported from the East, but they were also produced in large numbers at textile centres in France, England and Scotland. Their heyday was the mid th century.

Overview Reference Overview of vintage embroidery transfers Vintage embroidery transfers have regained popularity today, thanks in no small part to advances in technology that allow designs to be programmed and machine-stitched with beautiful results. Improved fabric paints, dyes and markers allow these great old designs to be used by even the needle-challenged. And, of course, those who enjoy the satisfaction and quality of hand-stitching still use them the “old-fashioned” way.
Embroidery transfers have been available from many, many different companies for well over a hundred years. So whether you’re looking for breathtakingly intricate motifs for heirloom embroidery, authentic designs for period costumes, particular motifs to complement a collecting interest, or a comical design to enliven your kitchen towels, there’s a huge assortment of vintage designs waiting to be rediscovered. This overview addresses a major roadblock for the vintage embroidery transfer enthusiast — the lack of organized material about vintage transfers.
Old catalogs are scarce or non-existent , companies have gone out of business — histories and product lines have to be pieced together from scraps of information scattered across web pages and collections. So here’s a launching place for research about the designs and the major companies that produced embroidery transfers dating back to the late s. It’s an ongoing reference project open for use by everyone who enjoys vintage transfers. Naturally its value to the stitching community depends on accuracy and depth of information.

But for some reason, I held off. Largely due to sheer laziness, I imagine, because a post like this takes a lot of thought and energy to write. But there have been rumors of a recent change in the leadership at Vogue Patterns which actually flies under the McCalls banner, and they also own Butterick and Kwik Sew, but I mostly sew Vogue and some of my sewing friends were talking about their satisfaction or lack thereof with the current Vogue product line.

Sewing blog, tips, patterns, tutorials, fabric, fashion, and hats. I wondered if I would see anything I liked. But I did see a few from each company that I would like to sew. Here are a few highlights, in no particular order, from Simplicity and Vogue. This post would have been way to long to do all four! Simplicity fall sewing patterns I like this interesting s knit top pattern reissued by Simplicity this year.
I only wonder if it will stayed tucked in the front. Apparently Simplicity will be celebrating its 90th anniversary next year. I rarely see vintage separates reissued. I would make this bolero jacket, blouse and skirt pattern! This Simplicity pattern seems influenced by sewing blogs, which is where I first heard people discussing pattern hacks. I like the drape of this skirt as is so I may just buy it for the basic skirt.
I really love the jacket. You could make it from a great home dec fabric.

Sunday, November 10, Vogue – Pattern Alterations This pattern appears to be a simple silhouette with a few inserts. Let me start out by saying, yeah right!

Vogue I started with a Vogue size I can honestly say that if I hadn’t had my TNT dress pattern to compare the pattern to, I would be lost.

By the last decades of the 18th century the philosophical, stylistic and financial certainties of the mid eighteenth century were already undermined by exposure to different cultures.
Improved transport and trade changed both cultural perceptions and social structures. The neo classical designs of the last two decades of the century were only the beginning of a natural progression to even stronger departures from the old English forms. The neo classical influence of the 18th century, which in the case of tea caddies translated itself in straight shapes and stylised ornaments, developed in the early 19th century to the adaptation of classical architectural forms and shapes in the construction of boxes.

For old tissue paper? It would seem unlikely, but if that “old tissue paper” is a collectible sewing pattern, then prices even higher than stated should not surprise. Ellen Curtis Demorest is credited with the creation of the first tissue-paper sewing patterns. These were distributed in her husband’s publication “Mme.
