Vanity Cross Stitch Pattern features a young society maiden adorned in the exquisite fashions of 19th century Paris. It’s a replica of an 1890 painting by French artist Auguste Toulmouche.
This is a very large, full coverage project that measures 63.5cm x 98.7 cm (350 x 544 grid area) when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth. You’ll need 189 different DMC colours and will complete 190,400 stitches.
We won’t kid you, it’s a challenging project because we’ve included a lot of confetti to replicate the fine detail of the woman’s pink bustled gown, the fashionable floral arrangement, and the intricate details of the luxury gold furniture. That said, the finished piece looks simply amazing.
PLEASE NOTE: We’ve included an extra chart in your download pack that has been specially formatted for the Pattern Keeper App. We recommend using PK to manage large, full coverage cross stitch.
