During the Elizabethan period, there are several styles of embroidery that became popular:

  • Blackwork continued to be used mainly on clothing, however, while the earlier, reversable form remained in use (on collars and cuffs), new forms began to be used. These included a informal, freeform often floral all-over work used on foreparts and sleeves.
  • General free form embroidery was also produced.
