Time for student of the month which is this month is… @the.fabric.of.time
Kate took our Broderie Anglaise to brush up on her eyelet skills and these were the results !
With her interest in historical sewing, I’m sure these skills will come in handy for other projects such as buttonholes as well as looking gorgeous.
It is well worth checking out her page for other historical sewing projects she has worked on such as this 1830’s stays
Or a particular favourite of ours, this pocket project! Worn under the split sides of a 1900’s or earlier skirt, they were fastened around the waist so you could carry all manner of heavy things around without disturbing the shape of your outer garment. Women used to keep all sorts in here, from change to chalk and coal!
The embroidery work is exceptionally lovely too which does somewhat sway us.
We just love to see how our community goes on to use and interpret what they buy and learn so we adore when you share your photos with us. Snap a picture of your London Embroidery School project and tag us (@londonembschool) in it on instagram for your chance to be the next student of the month and win yourself a 10% off voucher to go towards your next London Embroidery School Project.
