My current "big" project is an 18th century outfit. I finished the stays awhile ago, and I am working on the dress right now. While at a friend's house, watching the wonderful Elizabeth Gaskell movies, I embroidered this pocket. The fabric is linen, and the burgandy thread matches my stays (which I'll show you later). The pattern I used for the embroidery was from a book called White Work by Carter Houck.
