2nd pocket

currently working on an embroidered pocket.

I'm using silk thread on linen. The embroidery pattern is based on the embroidery found on a pair of drawers mentioned in "Dressed (or Undressed) for success" by Carol Tucker, while interviewing Margaret Rosenthal, itis mentioned  "how courtesans wore male-style clothing as undergarments - such as linen knickers, embroidered with phrases such as "I want the heart."
