The Burrell Collection includes a slim fitting, semi-formal jacket which dates from 1600-1625 and is embroidered with silks and silver gilt threads. It is a fine example of the ornate period style. I have used the decorative butterflies and flowers to create a border pattern for a cardigan, but I have updated the style by bringing to the fore the tropical colours of the silk threads.



Some of the designs from the book A Collector's Item, which are all available as yarn packs.
