The new Sew Beautiful Magazine is out. I love every issue but I think by far this is one of the best. It is packed with everything!
I love the vintage back to school dress. I think I wore a dress like that to school in the 19 ....mumble mumble. Lets just say a while a go. :-)
My dear friend Helen Lively has her smocked sculptures of "Bruce" the rooster and "Maja" the Peacock in the magazine. The pictures are like pictures of the Grand Canyon. The picture look great but it is hard to translate how overwhelmingly majestic they are. She also has a wonderful top for women in this issue.
Also Sew Blessed has her daughters in the magazine. Here is the link to her blog. http://sew-blessed.blogspot.com/
If I was 17 again I would make the Corset cover top by Kathy B.... sigh!
Can You tell I love this issue?!
Here is the link to the sneak peek. http://www.sewbeautifulmag.com/
I have two smocking plates for boys in this issue. The first one is "Airplanes & Rockets"
And the second one is "Robots".
When you get a chance, please let me know how you like the way we have charted these smocking plates in the magazine. Do you like having the stitch count included? Do you need step by step written instructions?
