Silk Regency Reticule

I've been making some more silk Regency style reticules today, and was particularly happy with this one.

Its in a heavyweight pure silk yarn, with a picot edge and striped in colours that reflect the fondness for pineapples at this period. I'm planning on doing some properly spiky pineapple reticules soon, but for the moment, this gives a good look and is a nice cheerful little bag. the colours have come out a bit washed out in the picture, they are a better mix in real life.
