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.
