1920s Lady

It’s a summer evening in the Roaring Twenties as this chic lady enters the room. All eyes turn her way as she dazzles the crowd in the latest fashion. In a sweeping shawl and stylish chemise made of elegant silk and with hand embroidered embellishments and sparkling beads, she glides onto the dance floor. Strings of pearls and a fan made of custom dyed ostrich feathers are the perfect accessories. Stitched on Polstitches 28 count ‘colorful clouds’ Jobelan and shimmering with Kreinik threads and Mill Hill beads, she is all the rage. You’ll find her in issue 225 of Cross Stitch Collection.

    Can’t wait to see her. This one is a must for me. Unfortunately I recently lost my middle finger on my right hand, I’m trying very hard to get back to cross stitching, hopefully this design will inspire me
