Oil on original 1940s sewing pattern sheet applied to canvas with handstitched embroidery.

Description

Going through a few decades with this one - from the 1940s dress pattern sheet for those unfashionable school tunics to a version of what Calvin Klein would create in the 60s. If I told you how many hours were spent stitching through the paper and canvas, I'm sure you'd feel pity. Painted edges, ready to hang or be sent to the framers if you so choose to be put under glass.
