Bridal hanky lace in progress. I had to refill the shuttle last night. I don't know why it is that I have to keep referring to the diagram. You would think I'd have it memorized by now but the picot count on each petal of each segment is different and I have to keep referring back. I don't want to make a mistake on this one. It's special. The bride wanted her "blue" in the hanky and I will thread a blue ribbon through the lace when it is done and attached to the hanky.


I really love this concept. I would not use this exact pattern but I love the way it drapes. It would work well on just about any kind of neckline, I think. The website only featured the photo. I don't know where the pattern originates from. The photo doesn't enlarge so I couldn't tell if it buttons onto the dress or if an attachment is included in the design.

And that reminds me...I haven't seen any tatted buttons for a long time. Another idea to put in the "someday" file.


  1. Ooooh, Rosemarie Peel wore a collar which wasn't a traditional collar once when I met her. It was really, really pretty and very clever. Not sure how she attached it, though.

  2. Your hanky edging is coming along very nicely! I'm sure the bride will absolutely love it, who wouldn't? The collar is very beautiful, too.
