Our Art Deco Chic Cross Stitch Pattern was inspired by the hand-drawn cover of a vintage fashion magazine.
Issued in Paris, the May 1931 edition of ART-TASTE-BEAUTY magazine featured the latest summer silks, advice on how to rock a tongue dress while waltzing, and a lively debate on the future of talkies vs silent films. Delicious.
The cross stitch project is true Art Deco style and we’ve done our best to recreate the haughty cover girl’s 1930s bob and upturned collar — in the original colour palette.
Despite being almost 100 years old, this à la mode design will definitely give your home decor or commercial workspace a fashionable edge and lashings of glamour.
Adrien Delovincourt was a French illustrator and artist who lived at the height of the Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. He worked with ceramics, stained glass, and print media and was famous for his fashion illustrations and cover art.
We have transformed a number of Delovincourt’s illustrations into counted cross stitch, check them out in our shiny new cross stitch store.
