Historical Hand Embroidery Design - 1816 Hearts and Dots Border - RR114H
This is a digital file
This listing is for a hand embroidery design for a delicate border of hearts and dots arranged in a scalloped floral motif. This design would be suitable for Regency gowns, as well as aprons or handkerchiefs suitable for the late 18th and early 19th centuries. This design for muslin embroidery was originally published in the January 1816 edition of Ackermann's Repository of Arts, Literature, Commerce, Manufactures, Fashions and Politics, as seen in the last image.
This design includes 4 pieces: two straight border sections of short and longer repeats, one corner, and an additional piece used as a "gap filler" when fitting the border and corner pieces together. The corner can be rotated and used as an additional border, and the small motif can be used to create fill patterns. With this set you can create a wide variety of designs.
This design forms a square approximately 8" x 8" when you use two corners, one border, and the gap filler. Each additional border piece adds approximately 2". Samples have been stitched in fine cotton embroidery thread on cotton lawn.
We make every effort to ensure that our embroidery designs are well-researched so you can use them with confidence on your historical costuming projects. They may copy the wobbles or slight flaws in an original design, to help keep them from looking too perfect and modern. All our files are accompanied by a detailed description of the original design as well as stitching instructions and thread recommendations so you can get the most out of these designs.
You will receive a detailed PDF containing historical notes, tips for transferring your pattern, the embroidery design, and reversed design, and a guide to stitch direction based on the original artwork.
Finished size: The border is 1.2" tall. The largest piece is 4.4" W x 1.2" H.
