This is another ren faire garb related post. Blackwork is the standard decoration for renaissance era undies. As much as I would love to have this delicate stitchery around the neckline and cuffs of my chemise, it's not gong to happen. That would take serious amount of time; quiet, uninterrupted time, of which I have none. So, I am going to fake it. By combining some of the embroidery stitches on my sewing machine, I have been able to create a fairly believable substitute. Let's just hope I don't run into a group of hardcore authenticity nuts at the faire, who will have me burned at the stake.
