The Kirsten Project Birthday Dress


View this post on Instagram

Here’s another view of Kirsten’s birthday dress, all grown up! 💐 . . . . . This project was probably more heavily weighted on research time over sewing time and there’s a lot of materials I’ve boiled down for you! Did you see the companion example post that went along with the finale? I love combining history with artistry through this project. What’s your favorite historical tie in? 💐 #KirstenLarson #AGKirsten #AmericanGirl #PleasantCompany #AmericanGirlKirsten #HappyBirthdayKirsten #gingham #1854 #1855 #19thCentury #19thCenturyFashion #19thCenturyStyle #HistoricalDress #AGigers #TieredSkirt #OOTD #wiwt #WhatIWore #HistoricalSewing #Handsewn #Sewing #memade #FlowerCrown #Midsommar #FloralCrown #1850s #1800s #Mid19thCentury #Springtime #historicaloutfit

Haley’s New Book:


View this post on Instagram

It feels kind of weird to announce this in the middle of a lockdown, but my newest book with @quartocreates, Feminist Stitches, is out today! (But, really, what is time?) When I was working on it, I was SO excited that this book + kit would be released during the centennial year of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. It was such an honor to look back at our complex history and to look forward toward the future. Find more info/links to buy the book under the books tab on my site! 💙💙 . . . . #embroidery #crossstitch #embroidering #crossstitchersofinstagram #stitchery #stitchersofinstagram #stitchersgonnastitch #crafter #craftersofinstagram #sewing #sewer #sewersofinstagram #sewist #sewistsofinstagram #writingabook #author #authorsofinstagram #craftbook #craftbooks # feminist #dmcfloss #quarto #quartocreates #feministstitches #haleypiersoncox
