Blackwork Cuffs Documentation
This was my first attempt at documentation and isn't perfect, but it was a fun learning experience.
This is a set of cuffs for a 1500's shirt. Silk thread on 32-count linen, pattern from Blackwork Archives. While they were originally intended as prettier replacement cuffs for a shirt I had already made for Doroga to fence in, I realized the rapier clothing takes too much abuse. As such, they are now trim to be applied to the next non-fencing shirt I make him (or for myself).
I entered these in my first A&S display at the Ladies of the Rose tournament in 2014 and won the populace vote!.
