For many years a byword for pretty and refined French taste, the esteemed haberdashery Maison Sajou supplies the most discerning home sewers with their linens, embroidery silks, and patterns, as well as a mouthwatering selection of sewing equipment, from embroidery scissors to needles, thimbles, and thread cards. This book brings that sophisticated sensibility to twenty desirable projects for you to make for yourself and your home. Bedlinen, tablecloths, cushions, and smaller but equally gorgeous accessories, such as book covers and spongebags, all acquire French style with simple but lovely embroidery, neatly stitched monograms, and some all-but-forgotten (but easily learned) techniques such as drawn threadwork or pointelle borders.

This book isn't very old but it felt very dated to me, but not quite dated enough to be retro/vintage lol. I love the Sajou aesthetic, the vintage thread spools and bobbins, the pin tins, etc. Some of that made it into the book, but not enough. The projects are photographed strangely, cutting off so you can't see the whole thing at once, which is REALLY frustrating for a pattern book! And the project I liked the look of most, the hanging pockets for thread and tool storage? The instructions didn't even include all the elements of the design! The embroidery pieces were there, but the Sajou logos/clip art weren't! So yeah, this was unfortunately a pretty disappointing book.

Sweet projects, mostly embroidery on linen. Items from clutch bag to lampshade, tablecloths, bolsters and pillows. Lovely photos. Have not tried patterns yet for accuracy.
