Our gorgeous 1920s Fashionista cross stitch pattern was inspired by the cover of a trendy French magazine, published in 1926.
Though we’re still not 100% sure, we think the artist who drew this glamorous fashion piece was French designer Adrien Delovincourt.
We think you’ll love stitching his haughty fashionista’s ornate headdress, delicate gloves, and snowy background. It will definitely bring some glamour to your home decor.
Let’s begin by saying this is a rather big cross stitch. It measures 37cm x 53cm (stitched on 14 count Aida) and requires 47,906 stitches. But we think it’s totally worth the effort.
There is so much fun to be had stitching this fantastic design. The large blocks of DMC pinks and violets (Baby Pink, Rose, Light Peach and Mauve), the soft pastels for falling snowflakes (Apple Blossom, White Violet, Cream), and the fashionista’s richly coloured headress, lips, and leather gloves (Dark Fuchsia, Coral Red, Dark Blue, and Cocoa). So much fun.
Adrien Delovincourt was a French artist and designer who created a huge range of Art Nouveau and Art Deco pieces in different mediums — stained glass, ceramics, illustrations for print. Many of his works were displayed in Siegfried Bing’s famous Maison de L’Art Nouveau.
We are big fans of vintage Art Nouveau and have transformed a number of Delovincourt’s illustrations into counted cross stitch, patterns for you to stitch. They make great cross stitch projects.
