Chic lady

Yesterday I hit my favourite thrift store for a browse while we were waiting for Mr Stitchy's prescriptions from the chemist next door. And I almost walked past this pair of napkins/placemats and a bigger table runner. Not handstiched, from the look of the back of the work, but still adorable nevertheless:


I thought you would agree, my stitchy friends, so I'll scan her tonight and tweak it until I get a transfer pattern for you to use.
Update: here she is, hopefully you can use her:

So cute - she'd look fab on the hem of a full 50's skirt, and you would need to pose with a drink in hand when wearing it...

Wow, she is adorable.

Awesome - I love the detail in her skirt. And I have the perfect green swing skirt to embroider her on before the next big dance!

Thank you for giving us a copy. I can imagine many possibilities for this pattern.
