Peasant embroidery made a comeback in the 1970s, when I made several shirts with embroidered peasant designs. I even tried one very similar to the smocked Mexican style below. Argh! Why did I give all those clothes away!
I wish I had the actual McCall’s transfers for these patterns, but, as a substitute, I do have some peasant designs from a series of “make it yourself” books published in the 1970s by Columbia House.
