National Sewing Month

Day 2

Question: What was your favorite garment that was hand-sewn, and who sewed it for you? Mine was a yellow A-line dress that my mom made, and I wore white go-go boots with it. Nancy Sinatra sang my theme song!

Glamour Girl by Christen Brown

This piece started with the fun print that was used in all four blocks. I loved the colors that were used and found additional fabrics in both stripes and prints in those same colors. I also incorporated a few precious strips of vintage batik fabrics. The piece is embellished with rick rack trim, grosgrain and novelty ribbons, embroidery, beads and sequins, and novelty buttons.

This is a new piece, that can be seen in my new book, Hand Embroidery Dictionary, by C&T Publishing.

    • Hi Pati, The print is probably three or four years old, maybe longer, so not vintage. I am not sure where I bought it though. It would be fun to cut out sections to use on your jeans! Sorry I can’t bequeath you any though, I used all that I had on this piece! Miss U2!
