Once a week in the Georgian Era sailors had a laundry day where they washed and embroidered their clothes. (I was reading The Ionian Mission and it was on Tuesday I think, but it varied ship-to-ship.) The embriodered shore-going rig was kind of a status symbol; more embroidery = manlier sailor or so I heard...but the image of several hundred sailors embroidering was kind of too good to pass up.
just wanted an excuse to colour something insanely bright and saturated.
