Teddy Bear fanciers, make your own and enjoy every loving stitch as well as the delightful finished product This easy-to-follow, single-volume guide is the only book you need to create a charming one-of-a-kind collection of everybody's favorite stuffed toy. Expert bear maker Doris King provides complete instructions and patterns for making both jointed and unjointed bears, plus full-size, ready-to-use patterns for a variety of outfits: suit, shirt, slacks, shorts, tank top, dress, bonnet, pinafore, pajamas, jogging suit -- even a chef's apron. What's more, the bears and their wardrobe can be made on a sewing machine. Create traditional Teddies out of mohair or alpaca, use the modern synthetic furs available in a variety of colors and textures, or make attractive, inexpensive bears from corduroy, calico, gingham, chintz, or patchwork. Varying the type of fabric and the size and type of eyes will give each of your bears a distinctive personality. In addition to a full discussion of fabrics, you'll find advice on stuffing materials (for soft, cuddly bears and firm, sturdy ones), placing and cutting out pattern pieces, sewing techniques, and much else. Clear step-by-step instructions show how to create your own collection of lovable bears, while illustrations on the cover suggest color schemes for the charming toys. Ideal for nursery, playroom, and any other room, these huggable handmade Teddies made perfect gifts. Sew up a denful for yourself and everyone who deserves a special bear hug.
Описание: As an early-20th-century English artist with an interest in historical subjects, Talbot Hughes began collecting clothing for accuracy in his paintings -- and the pursuit grew into a labor of love. His magnificent costume collection was eventually displayed in Harrod's and has become a permanent part of the collection of the venerable Victoria and Albert Museum in London. In this well-researched guide, Hughes traces the evolution of English fashions from the grass-cloth wraps of prehistoric times to the luxurious gowns of the Victorian era. Arranged chronologically and by British reigns, this splendid compilation includes over 300 illustrations of period fashions for men and women and 94 photos of historic garments. Pictured are tunics and tights from the thirteenth century, Elizabethan gowns with starched ruff collars, Charles I cavaliers with lace-collared jackets and breeches, a five-century array of boots and shoes, an assortment of elaborate wigs, embroidered waistcoats, quilted petticoats, plumed headdresses, and other dashing designs of the past. More than a history of British style, it's also a dressmaker's delight, with scaled-down patterns for 67 authentic costumes -- and a perfect reference for fashion designers, stylists, and historians.
