I have several Tudor events to go to this summer, and as I will be giving blackwork displays, this required the need for some new posher Tudor kit Smiley  Complete costume is almost finished, but wanted to post up some of the embroidery I have done on it here Smiley

I found the pattern for the collar on http://www.blackworkarchives.com/ .  I totally love this website.  Embroidery has been done in 1 strand of black silk thread, and the rest of the partlet has also been hand sewn together.  The blackwork running down the centre of the partlet is taken from the middle of the design.  Now just to get the rest finished for Thursday!!

Anyway, here's some pics:









And side view of it on;



(ignore the un-pinned totally falling down sleeves lol Smiley )

Thanks for looking. V.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thank you Smiley  Usually all the blackwork I make is always for other people, and this was the first bit I had done as an addition to my own kit.  So very glad that I can finally wear my own embroidery Smiley  Thank you all for the comments, will definitely be very relieved once the whole costume is complete Smiley

Great work on that partlet!

I have always loved the blackwork archive. I've spent many an hour pouring through those designs. Smiley

Let us know when this entire outfit gets posted!

This is so nice.  The blackwork is perfect on your shirt.  I also really like the thought of embellishing clothing rather than sticking with embroidery projects that turn into wall hangings . . . there's just so much wall to go around!
