I'm so tempted to resume my cross-stitching after discovering these lovely designs! CrossStitchArts.co.uk have created some patterns that feature period costumes from various eras including Regency, Victorian and Edwardian. I've posted some examples below but be sure to visit their website to take a gander yourself!
