Sewing with a particular interest in the clothing and work of French women in the Illinois Country.

I found the sweetest tiny reticule today at the thrift store. It's linen on the outside, satin lining, and ribbon embroidery just like in "18th Century Embroidery Techniques" by Gail Marsh. I know reticules aren't quite right for early-mid 1700s but it is so charming I think I will just have to use it as a little money purse at events.
