CROSS STITCH PATTERN DESIGNED BY Perrette Samouiloff
This cross stitch pattern is part of a series of three designs related to former needlework trades. After the Lacemaker, and the Milliner, here is a tribute to the Seamstress.
While you can still have your clothes altered today, in the old days you could go to the taylor's or the seamstress's and have a dress made, perfectly adapted to your size, in the fabric of your choice.
Perrette Samouloff brings the trade to life, depicting the seamstress's shop full of beautiful fabrics draped over mannequins, samples of precious ribbons and trimmings, and enticing patterns illustrating the fashion of the day. Armed with patience, the seamstress is seated at her work, silks draped over her knees and needle running in the pleats and tucks of the fabric.
The cross stitch design also features the seamstress's tools, needles, pins, spools of thread and of course her sewing machine. The title of the embroidery "The seamstress" is stitched in pretty cursive letters.
