Lost somewhere between Lizzy Bennet’s spencers and Scarlett O’Hara’s hoops, the Romantic Era is woefully unappreciated. Maybe it’s because fashionable women resembled over-frosted cupcakes wearing hats like Rose Bowl parade floats. But oh my goodness. All that delicious feminine extravagance! This pattern from a French fashion magazine is typical for its time, and I thought I’d share it for Christmas.
After scanning and cleaning, I tried to add some holiday red and green to my copy for a photo. Unfortunately, the red looks pink. New color pencils are on my wish list!
Want to print a pattern to tuck in your workbox? If you’d like a free (meaning all you have to do is ask) actual-size pdf of this one, just email me. I’ll send it to you. Merry Christmas!

A very Happy Christmas to you too! But now the Hittys want clocked stockings and I don’t know if I am up to it at that scale!
Well if anybody can, it’s you! 🙂
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with ‘us’! I look forward, eagerly, to each post, wishing I could actually be ‘there’ in person to really experience your discoveries.
I would love a pattern for the Christmas Clocks.
Have a lovely Holiday, and may Happiness and Contentment be yours all throughout 2017!
Done. Certainly worthy of silk thread, or at least a nicer box of pencils or crayons than I have! And the happiest holiday wishes to you too!
Now those are stockings with impact!
I hope there is a nicer box of pencils on the way…
Please send me the PDF pattern. It is lovely.
