New from Reconstructing History! Extreme Embroidery Patterns by Laura Mellin!
These painstakingly-documented embroidery patterns are taken from extant embroidered garments and period portraiture. Each design has been extensively researched and drawn out for your ease of use.
“Margaret” is based on the embroider on an unfinished coif dated to 1600-1610 in the Carew-Pole Collection.
Each full-sized pattern is ready to transfer to your embroidery medium. Just follow the instructions for transferring the pattern, thread your needle, and go!
