    By

    You don't have to be a needlework expert to add fashion embellishment techniques from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s to your wardrobe. With just a little practice anyone can create an elegant beaded gown, add custom-made braiding to a simple blouse, art deco trims and piping to a jacket, or use traditional threadwork techniques to spice up a linen caftan. The author has adapted these decorative applications for today's clothing. Her ideas will spark the creative spirit of all needleworkers, from beginners to the most experienced.
