And Sew to Bed by Vanessa Mooncie
Re-discover the refined elegance of bygone eras with this book of gorgeous vintage-style projects that will turn your bedroom into a luxurious sanctuary, from UK author Vanessa Mooncie. It features 20 projects with step-by-step illustrations and all the sewing know-how you need. It includes handy pull-out pattern sheets that tuck neatly into the pocket in the back of the book. Quilted slippers, embroidered make-up bags, lounge suits and silky slips will add a touch of simple feminine glamour and timeless chic to your boudoir. Immerse yourself in a time where the sophistication seemed effortless, but the thrifty ethos of make-do and mend was a necessity. French knickers made from a worn shirt, a hot water bottle cover made from old curtains - these re-cycled gems are sure to become treasured favourites. All the sewing know-how you need is fully explained and shown with clear step-by-step illustrations. Handy pull-out pattern sheets take the hassle out of cutting out and tuck neatly into the back of the book.
