I promised I'd show you more of the patterns I found recently. These happen to all be from the 70's (are you surprised?). First of all, may I just say that I LOVE this red skirt and blouse with the rick rack?! I want it:
And the cropped peasant blouse with embroidered bodice is pretty cute, too. Embroidery transfers were included:
A couple of different styles here:
Along with embroidery transfers to create this blouse:
These blouses have insets and/or lace trim. The one at bottom left called for using a purchased handkerchief with corner embroidery - what a cute idea!
For this one in blue, they suggested purchased iron-on embroidery:
I also found this pattern consisting of embroidery transfers from 1976. I was very happy to find this one!
Because it is the very one that I used to embroider this iris onto a blue cotton chambray shirt way back when. 1976, huh? That sounds about right....
I also found a neat Coats & Clark's booklet, "Ideas For Embroidery". I really like some of the designs inside:
Love these guys:
The first time I showed you the iris I had done, I said that I hadn't embroidered anything in years.
Unfortunately, that is still the case. I suppose I probably COULD re-learn the stitches.
