Heirloom Sewing- French Hand Sewing

Sarah Howard Stone's book, at left, is the "bible" of French Hand Sewing. Many of her patterns for french hand sewing can be found at her website www.sarahhowardstone.com . My baby daughter is currently wearing one of her designs, Babette (modified). I wore "Melissa" as a girl, my sister wore "Bijoux" and the next project for my little one will be "Tyler". Such beautiful, classic, timeless pieces. One of the many things I love about heirloom sewing. Happy looking at her website !

You make me LONG for a daughter! LOL My 2 boys would look rather silly in a pretty dress and I'm sure Mr. Wilt would not approve. LOL Just teasing...your handwork is gorgeous- I linked to it from my blog last night. :o)

I wish you lived closer so you could teach me, too!

In His joy,
Mrs. Wilt
