First of all, thank you and welcome back to Artymess, Fabriquefantastique and Scott Egerton, who have now reappeared through the cybermaze!
Now feast your eyes on the beautiful designs. Can't you just imagine them stitched in tiny satin stitch, or woven into brocade, or printed on silk? Where have you seen similar designs? This could be a special assignment for Fabriquefantastique.
Somewhere in this house I have an old(ish) little book in German of children in peasant costume, which I should examine with a magnifying glass. I must dig the book out some time. I just wish I knew where to start digging.
