Sewing With Fabulous Vintage Fabrics
Luxurious linens, lovely old lace, charming chenille and cross-stitch, and timeless textiles: collectors who love beautiful antique fabrics and seamstresses who have classic clothing they'd like to repurpose will find inspiration in these 30 superb designs. There's something for everyone, including an exquisite christening gown adorned with lace, a denim jacket with a vintage fur collar, and a jaunty set of 1950s patterned café curtains. A blouse made from an elegant sheer curtain panel even has three variations; one is elegant and sophisticated, another features a cute strawberry print, and a third style showcases latticework from an old nightdress. Layout sketches for every article show clearly how each vintage textile, whether a doily or mid-century tablecloth, has undergone its transformation. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

Some of the projects are okay, mostly they are a waste of a nice piece of material. Sometimes a tea towel should stay a tea towel.
