A ROMANTIC LACE CUFF FOR JEN

 I HAD TO SNEAK MY SUGAR GIRL INTO THIS POST~ !  ISN'T SHE GORGEOUS!




My dear "Aussie Sis" Jen Crossley had a special 50th birthday and I knew I had to make her something unique and different.  Jen LOVES vintage, so my collection of vintage laces and tatting came into play.  I played around with the Dupioni silk and vintage laces, and findings until I was satisfied.  I did a little bit of machine stitching, but did most of it by hand.  I thought of using buttons and chain for closing, but the lacing gave it that magical look of vintage lingerie that I love.  I hadn't used my eyelet tool for a very long time and that was a real challenge, but I was happy with the results.
