"For several years, I taught introductory blackwork embroidery at the "Schole of Needleworke" at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire, and discovered that I much prefer designing embroidery to actually working it. Between 1985 and 1990, I self-published three booklets of hand-drawn embroidery designs for costume under the series title Elizabethan Blackwork. This archive contains the "best of" those booklets, with much cleaner patterns, plus many new designs.
A Note on Authenticity: These patterns are inspired by historical needlework of sixteenth and seventeenth century England, but they are all original designs. Re-enactors and curators who require absolute fidelity to documented patterns are encouraged to check out the collections offered by The Skinner Sisters at skinnersisters.com. "

Early paper dolls were luxury items, so expensive that only the wealthiest aristocrats could afford them. They were printed on hand-made rag papers and meticulously colored by hand. With mass production and lower standards, the quality of paper dolls suffered and they lost much of their charm.
