Flounces embroidery patterns

Through Google and then through Jane Austen Today I found some pretty simple but beautiful authentic 18th century embroidery pattern designs for white embroidery on Victoria and Albert Museum. At first I thought I wanted to make a pattern of my own for the flounces, but I wanted to look up some time typical designs to get the right look and that’s when I found these. Why not use them? I don’t have to do everything myself from scratch!

The story of the patterns is well worth reading, but I’m not going to go into that here and now – do go read about it (and find more patterns) here.
