A Present for Your Stocking

present-for-stocking-1

present-for-stocking-3Lost 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!

  1. 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!
