One embroidered sleeve finished

I have now finished the embroidery on one of the sleeves for Valeria's 16th century Italian camicia. I have also sewn it on,  and sewn one side together, by hand, felled the seams and sewed a black and off white bobbin lace to the cuff and gatheered it.

The cut of the shift and embroidery pattern is taken from this preserved Italian camicia, now in the textile museum in Prato, Tuscany.

I am not sure if I will make embroidery along all the seams though, it's not like it will be seen. There will probably be some wider embroidery added around the neck though - even if that won't be seen often either.
