Alison Larkin January 2022: Georgian embroidery and costume

This month we were whisked back in time to the Georgian era, by local embroiderer and co author of the book Jane Austen Embroideries, Alison Larkin.  Lots of elegant waistcoats and top coats with exquisite embroidery (and that was just the men) and the ladies in delicate silks and muslin, also either quilted or embroidered.  Alison’s work on the Jane Austen patterns from “The Lady” magazine were delightful.  A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
