French Floral




French Floral is inspired by and uses the techniques of French Goldwork from the 1700’s. In the mid to late 1700’s gentlemen were resplendent in their floral and foliate embroidered coats with matching vests and breeches for attending Court. This piece uses vellum for padding (guipure) with satin stitch in passing (filé) and features laid rough purl (frisure), spangles (paillettes) and rococo (frisé) threads. Design size: 17.5cm x 21.5cm.  The kit contains all materials required for working the design.
