I have been lusting for this outfit since I first saw it and tore the pages out of a magazine way back during my high school days.

I love the look of and name of trapunto. I was always going to try my hand at it. God my list of “one of these days I’m going to make” is getting really long.


A couple of years ago I finally threw the pages away. Then I found that set of Encyclopedia of Crafts books and there was that outfit again. I still think its a really cool look. Maybe not so much the scarf, reminds me too much of my chemo days. But that jacket. And the print of that dress. Love it.

So I have copied the pages and made a PDF for you to download right here. There’s a little history of trapunto there, some instructions and even a motif to trace and try your hand on creating your own trapunto piece of art. Enjoy.

    Maybe this should be moved to the top of your list. Since it keeps popping up, maybe it’s meant to be ^.^

    I’ve seen many outfit like this today, so you won’t look dated in it. It’s very groovy, you know I’d wear it. The time to make this is NOW.

    Mmmmm, you guys are making me want to stop all critter production and concentrate on making something for just me. Maybe.
