So are you all familiar with Piecework Magazine? It is another publication from Interweave Press that focuses on historical needlework. Neat magazine. Every year they do a variety of issues with a specific focus, like knitting or lace. This year I had a project in the lace issue. A little christening gown.
My friend Donna Druchunas has done a lot of research into and work on the lace of Dorothy Reade, including the book Successful Lace Knitting. (Why, yes. I do have a project or two in that book.) Anyway, this christening gown was a project I put together based on some Dorothy Reade lace motifs. Donna and I decided to submit it to Piecework to accompany an article she wrote in conjunction with her research. It is such a beautiful little project. Happy to get to share it with everyone!
If you have any interest at all in traditional needlework of all sorts, I encourage you to run out and buy a copy of Piecework. You won’t be disappointed!
