This is an EXCLUSIVE kit from the-stitchery’s own brand!
This gorgeous dressmaker’s dummy pincushion kit doubles up as a useful pincushion as well as a stylish and unique decorative piece. It’s the perfect addition for any sewing room and a super-smart gift for any sewist. Either make it and give it or give it to them to make!
In natural linen & cotton union fabric, or traditional black & white striped cotton ticking, this shapely, pincushion takes the form of a dressmaker’s or tailor’s dummy. At the neck it features a delicate, natural cotton lace trim. Around the waist it sports a tape measure ribbon belt finished with a wooden ‘Handmade with Love’ button.
Continuing the natural theme, the pincushion is supported on a bamboo knitting pin mounted in a traditional, wooden thread spool. It is finished with more natural cotton lace and pearly pins complete the kit.
Supplied with a paper pattern and easy-to-follow instructions with diagrams, this darted, dressmaker’s dummy pincushion kit is perhaps not for total beginners. It is a bit fiddly but fun; some patience is required mainly because it’s fairly small scale, but the end result is definitely worth the effort!
Fabric, decorative haberdashery and doll stuffing are included in the kit as well as the two wooden stand pieces. To complete this dressmaker’s dummy pincushion kit, you will also need scissors, pins, sewing thread, contrast tacking thread & a short, fine hand sewing needle as well a tiny smudge of PVA glue (optional).
We love, love, LOVE this kit and hope you will too!
