CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Perrette Samouiloff
This design is part of a series of cross stitch charts related to needlecrafts. After the Lacemaker, here is a tribute to the fine art of hatmaking.
The milliner's trade, which has almost disappeared today, is the art of designing, making, decorating and personalizing hats, fashion accessories par excellence.
In this cross stitch pattern, the milliner is at work, needle in hand, in her hat shop, while her customers try various hats on. The hats come in a wide variety of styles and very feminine shapes: wide brim and veil, cloche hats from the thirties, floppy brimmed hats, round caps, straw hats, together with a whole collection of exquisite small hat pins.
The title of the embroidery "The Milliner" is embroidered in pretty cursive letters. The design is an adaptation from the French "La Modiste".
