vintage-inspired heirloom

series pattern-ebooks

Southern Stitches vintage-inspired heirloom series pattern ebooks are a new and unique pattern series not available anywhere else! My new series includes a one of a kind unique ePattern created from an actual vintage garment. Each series includes special heirloom sewing technique instruction along with unique machine embroidery designs and vintage-inspired patterns!

*note: there are hyperlinks within the PDF that will take you to extra technique instructions, to follow the links you will need to have the PDF open on your computer or tablet to access the links.

Series 2 is currently under construction and more heirloom series pattern ebooks will be created in the future as I continue to draft patterns off vintage garments in my collection.
