Description
Extant shirts and shifts from the 16th century are often decorated with embroidery. We'll look at where the embroidery is used, materials, stitches, threads and then design a free form pattern in class. We'll also discuss counted work and look at source material. Class includes a handout and model booklet by Mistress Isobel Bedingfield.
