Charted Embroidery designs from Vrlika, Dalmatia, Croatia

Hello all,
I ran across some charted embroidery designs from Vrlika in Croatia, and I decided to share them with you. These are from the Washington University digitized collection. There is some wonderful material put out on the internet by various Museums. These would have been used on the front and sleeves of the chemises of the area, as seen above. Some would have been used on linen kerchiefs as well.
