If you love antiques and vintage cross stitch we’ve transcribed a gorgeous spring courtship scene from the early 17th century archives. Courtship Vintage cross stitch was originally published in a 1604 pattern book.
We think you’ll love the incredible detail in the lady’s dress and her beau’s fashionable man-cape, sword and musketeer bloomers. Delicious! Stitch it up for your favourite Valentine’s Day couple or hang anywhere in the house you want to attract more romance.
Courtship vintage cross stitch measures 25cm x 18.1cm when stitched on 14 count Aida cloth. You’ll be completing 7,082 stitches in black, plus an accent colour. Just like the original pattern, we’ve used backstitches and half-stitches to define the flowers and the young man’s cape, bloomers, and sword.
PATTERN KEEPER NOTICE: your download pack contains an extra chart that has been formatted for Pattern Keeper App. Please remember that PK does not yet support half-stitches and backstitching.
