Piecework Spring 2019: A Review

Piecework has released its Spring 2019 issue. Let's have a look at it.

Weldon's Irish Lace Shawl. Timelessly attractive.

Molière's Embroidered Nightcap. Such beautiful embroidery. I don't know how many women this little cap would actually suit, though. I think I might feel not so much in tune with Molière's poetry as attired like one of Charles Dickens' satirically insufferable characters.

Ruhnu Mitts. Love the detail on these, especially the use of the contrasting colour.

A Boy's Scarf from Weldon's Practical Needlework. A handsome and timeless scarf.

Piecework 2018: A Review

Interweave has released its Piecework 2018 issue. Let's have a look at the few but lovely patterns within it.

Festival Lace Mitts. Fit for a bride.

Tea Rose Scarf. Such pretty lace. I see this one worn as an accessory over a summer-weight cocktail dress.

A Little Women Lace Fichu. For the past several days I've been working my way through the first season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Three of the characters, who are known collectively as the Weird Sisters, are often shown dressed in very simple, fitted dresses with lace collars and cuffs, a look that I suspect is going to become iconic in short order. It's certainly led me to think that knitted or crocheted collars is a look that deserves to come back in a big way. So I'm here for this fichu, which I can imagine adding an interesting new dimension to the right outfit.
