106: Victorian Elegance by Kate Barlow
This pretty design has been inspired by a beautiful pair of ladies’ embroidered boots dating from the late 1800s. The design is stitched using stranded silk threads from Au Ver à Soie, which work beautifully set against the dark blue silk dupion ground. Satin and stem stitches are used to create the sinuous stems and tendrils, while the leaves and flowers are worked in long and short, split and trellis stitches.
