Bobbin Lace

January 06, 2018

Hello lovelies,

I wish you all the best for 2018. I hope it will be a good year for all of your sewing projects.

A project I picked up last year was bobbin lace. I tried to self-study it with youtube tutorials and books but I am still at the basics and I can't grasp some of the more advanced lace making. The reason why I got into bobbin lace was my Beauty and the beast belle dress. I wanted the apron to have embroidery and a nice lace border but was not able to get lace that fit my 18th century standard. So I decided to make it myself. Genius - maybe on the long run but I am really just at the basics. I hope I can find a decent bobbin lace class in Vienna.
This is my very first lace work. It took me a while but it turned out wobbly and not very well made, but practice makes perfect.

The second project was worked on a much smaller scale.

I then tried to do the lace and it took me three takes to get what I really wanted, but I think it worked out ok. The lace pattern I chose for Belle is from a book about 17th century lace. I think it also applies for the 18th century, or at least I hope it also applies for the 18th century.

All the best,

Auris Lothol
