The Background

Expressions of awe are natural reactions to the creations made from Susan Oliver’s patterns.

Susan Oliver devoted 7 years of research plus 3 years of writing and designing patterns using vintage techniques.

The machine sewing technique used in these patterns is French Heirloom sewing, the late 19th century art of embellishing clothing, accessories and linens with laces, tiny tucks and puffed strips of fabric.

Many needle art traditions are now forgotten because they are no longer being handed down from mother to daughter. This pattern is a way to rediscover those traditions.
