This has pretty embroidery and shipped quickly, my only qualms are that mine came with white ribbon on a black collar which wasn't what was pictured and doesn't flow as well to me, and the collar cut outs themselves are not even and one side it appears had to be sewn along the seam where it was perhaps frayed. I definitely expected variation with embroidery but not with pieces that can be measured and cut and not with roughly sewn seams.

Hello and welcome to my small shop of embroidered art. Everything is made by me by hand, using patterns I've devised from mostly 16th and 17th c. sources. My focus is on the esoteric, the occult, and the unusual, particularly alchemy. My mother taught me how to embroider when I was a little girl, and her mother taught her, and so on into the past. I am trying to continue the tradition. "Fila Arcana" means secret threads.
