FROM RENAISSANCE TO MODERN ACCESSORIE
V&A,London
 
  
This is a 17thC silk embroidered linen shirt in the V&A. The origin of the shirt is not clear. It's probably an imported shirt. But from England or Germany ? Parts of the pattern is known from 16th / 17thC samplers. The colorscheme is compatible with english samplers from the middle of the 17thC.
 
I've made an attempt to make a pattern based on these photoes. The patterns were are made in excell.
