Retro Cross Stitch by Véronique Enginger


Enter this deliciously vintage universe of 500 patterns and add a touch of nostalgia to your stitchwork. Recreate 1800s and 1900s fashion house designs and milliners’ catalogues. Take your cross stitch on a bon voyage into the past with traveling motifs like trunk labels of exotic destinations and railroad advertising posters. Other sections of patterns feature tea and coffee motifs, and daily life in vintage terms. Many of the designs include multiple scenes and motifs, offering you hundreds of components to use in a myriad of ways. Throughout, be inspired by “mood boards” of completed motifs, along with photos of projects that will show off your creations in daily life.


I love every single pattern in this book. The patterns are more vintage than retro, makes them right in my wheelhouse. They are super colorful and very easy to use. There are also lots of teapots. I adore teapots! In the above picture, the teapot pattern I am working on is very similar to the teapot I own.

I ordered a hard copy of this book today. I would rather hold the book. Easier to stitch from than a piece of paper which gets bent and faded.

This book is great for any cross stitcher.

I received this book from Netgalley for a honest review.
