SAL Dentelles Part 7

Last week's section for SAL Dentelles was much bigger. It is very frilly and "vintage" with two borders of flowers covered by lace.


The first border I covered with a woven lattice stitch. An idea I borrowed from Mrs Milkybar Kid (click on the link to see her version). For the bottom border I decided to stitch all the vertical stitches first. I almost stopped at this point because it looks pretty on it's own, but I went ahead and covered it with the filet lace. I did this by passing the thread beneath the vertical stitches instead of into the fabric.

 

We're nearing the end of the SAL, with 2 parts left to go. This means that very soon I'll be able to stitch more on my other WIPs :)
