It's just a canvas with a mere pattern chalked on it and you can embroider what you like!
Канва одна, и только намечен узор, - вышивай что хочешь.

You can smoke it, and drink it, and make ink out of it, and dye threads with it if someone wants to embroider a cloth.
Ее и курят, и пьют, и чернила из нее варят, и нитки красят, если кому охота полотенца вышивать.

Here, in gold-embroidered red doublet, jewelled surcoat, and gilt-edged ruff and wristbands, stood Sir Anthony Sherard, with his silver-and-black armour piled at his feet.
А вот в красном камзоле с золотым шитьем, в украшенной бриллиантами короткой мантии, в брыжах с золотым кантом и таких же манжетах стоит сэр Энтони Шерард, а у ног его сложены доспехи, серебряные с чернью.

Я видел, как она приехала в ажурных чулочках, в вышитых юбочках, в воротничках, манжетках, вся в оборочках…

The ladies and courtiers were all most magnificently clad; so that the spot they stood upon seemed to resemble a petticoat spread upon the ground, embroidered with figures of gold and silver.
Дамы и придворные все были великолепно одеты, так что занимаемое ими место было похоже на разостланную юбку, вышитую золотыми и серебряными узорами.

She was dressed in highly decorated alligator-hide cowboy boots, embroidered jeans, a silk shirt in what looked like bar-code tartan and a little suede waistcoat studded with pearls.
На ней были богато украшенные ковбойские сапоги из крокодиловой кожи, расшитые джинсы, шелковая рубашка с рисунком, похожим на цветной штрих-код, и короткий замшевый жилет с перламутровыми пуговицами.

Entering via the latter, he quickly changed from his blue robe to a dazzling white one and donned an elaborately embroidered, gilt-edged stole that had once belonged to a genuine priest.
Зайдя через последний, он быстро сменил голубую рясу на ослепительно белую и накинул поверх искусно вышитую, отделанную по краям золотом епитрахиль, которая когда‑то принадлежала настоящему священнику.

My little Matrona was passionately fond of driving in sledges, and she used to drive herself; she used to put on her pelisse and her embroidered Torzhok gloves, and cry out with delight all the way.
Матренушка у меня смерть любила кататься в санках, и сама, бывало, правит; наденет свою шубку, шитые рукавицы торжковские да только покрикивает.

When we stood to go, Mrs. Bora brought out a scarf of the finest cream-colored silk, embroidered with silver, and put it around Helen’s neck.
Когда мы встали, чтобы уйти, миссис Бора принесла нам шарф тончайшего кремового шелка, вышитый серебром, и обернула им шею Элен.

"He's neither one thing nor the other; I picked him out of the mud, I dressed him in drap de dames with little boots of good material, he has embroidered shirts like a general's son, why has he not grown attached to me?
"Ни он такой, ни он этакой; я его из грязи взял, в драдедам одел; на нем полсапожки матерчатые, рубашка с вышивкой, как генеральского сына держу, чего ж он ко мне не привержен?

It was then that I noticed they were wearing the same outfit... dark jeans jackets with beautiful golden wings embroidered on the breast pockets, black T-shirts, and low-riding black slacks.
Тут я впервые заметила, что они одеты совершенно одинаково — в черные джинсовые жакеты с вышитыми золотом крылышками на нагрудных кармашках, черные футболки и черные брюки с заниженной талией.

His dress, which was a buff-coat embroidered, had a half-military character, but exhibited nothing of the sordid negligence which distinguished that of Lindesay.
Его костюм — расшитая куртка из буйволовой кожи — придавал ему вид военного, хотя вовсе не был похож на грязную, неряшливую одежду, Линдсея.
