KIRKUS REVIEW

Needlework patterns from Victorian and turn-of-the-century magazines are adapted for today's clothing designs, and the surprise is how well they look--perhaps because of the ethnic.romantic-bohemian cast of much of today's dress. A band of plumes from a traveling cloak outlines a long gathered sleeve, a cross-stitch pattern from an apron turns up on a blouse and bag. There are instructions for transferring the designs at the start, and tips on the requisite needlework techniques at the close.
