This is one of four special edition kits made in collaboration with Abby Cox using various remnants from her costumes and handmade clothing.
Harlequin’s bright, jewel tone silks make for a super cheerful piece. Rainbow plaid taffeta from Abby's famous 1830s dress is accented with blue satin, green & purple taffetas, and the gold glazed cotton she uses in most of her linings. This kit features pockets individually lined in cotton and bound in petersham, a green wool needle book, and white silk ribbon.
In the 18th century, the item called a housewife (“hussif”) is one that had multiple uses. It could be a container for small personal items, a wallet, a sewing kit, or a combination of these. This housewife kit is a simple design based off period examples.
