New Digital Patterns | Australian Smocking & Embroidery
4th September 2020
Smocking is a timeless art and we are always thrilled when someone writes in to ask us about patterns from Australian Smocking & Embroidery Magazine (AS&E).
We know that issues of the magazine can be difficult to come by nowadays, so it is our pleasure to re-publish your requested patterns in digital format, and this week we have three that have just been released.
‘Baby Blue’ by Robyn Beaver from AS&E issue #47 has always been a favourite. It is the perfect project for someone wanting to try out a bishop for the first time.
With short sleeves and a back opening, this little dress has delicate blue smocking around the neckline highlighted with yellow roses. The pattern is for ages 1, 2 and 3 years.
The Bee’s Knees
For the slightly older girl, ‘The Bee’s Knees’ by Louise Spriggs from AS&E issue #85 is ideal.
The gorgeous gingham shirt, featuring smocking in black, white and yellow and finished with cute bumble bees, would look fantastic with jeans, leggings or a skirt. The pattern includes sizes 4, 6 and 8 years.
Finally, it is often difficult to find a perfect smocked garment for a new baby boy. ‘Little Prince’ by Kris Richards from AS&E issue #76 fits the bill precisely.
The little romper, for newborn, 3 and 6 months, is made from white waffle with smart blue checked mini piping and a simple smocked design. The pattern also includes a simply adorable matching beret and shoes to complete the outfit.
All three patterns are now available on our website ready for you to purchase as a digital download.
