I was given a very dear gift, a book on antique embroidery designs. This collection of designs date back to 1858 and were found in an attic, in an old trunk. The collection was published in book form in 1989. The book is wonderful to use with a spiral binding that makes it easy to copy or scan for easy use. The book includes a section of designs specifically for clothing, even vests. I look forward to using it on a costume.
