Boutis, also known as Provençal quilting, is a specific sewing technique dating back to the 17th-19th centuries, developed mainly in and around Marseilles. Used initially to embellish corsets, baby apparel and bedspreads, Boutis work developed into more elaborate and ornate attire, such as wedding dresses and swaddling clothes, as well as trousseaux and other luxury goods. Patterns are revealed via narrow tunnels that are stuffed with yarn, creating raised areas giving off both shadow and light.
In this book, Kumiko Nakayama has carefully hand-drawn all of her diagrams and patterns so as to ensure the finesse that this long-lost art represents. The 21 projects of varying difficulties are explained in detail and accompanied with elegant photos – a wedding skirt, lamp shade, purses, baby bib and bonnet, silk cuffs and collar, tablecloth – there is a project for everyone!
For those who are curious about learning this gorgeous art, a project specifically geared to beginners is thoughtfully outlined to ensure success. Also included are three diagrams to make tunnels of different widths, depending upon the project you choose to make.
