So I promised pictures of my latest finds and here they come!
Here’s a collective photo of all that day’s finds
Everythings lying on the wonderful fabric. I love the locket! I kinda wear it every day on my purse right now, hehe. ❤
What made me buy the white lace was mostly the quantity cuz it’s a lot – but I also liked the “hardness” of it, let me explain why. I know this is more of a sheat lace and lace for the manchette at the elbows and such were more soft and elaborate, but I have in mind to pleat this and maybe draw the peach lace over it (like in the pic) to kinda mimic the pleated decorations of the 18th century dresses like this:
I have no idea if they ever pleated lace like that in the 18th century (I have seen no evidence of it actually =/), but someone somewhere might have – correct me if I’m wrong… ;D
I don’t know if the peach lace thingy is very “in period” either, but I like they way it looks with my new fabric and it came in a big endless ball so I had to buy it! ;P To my happiness the color also matched perfectly with a piece of ribbon I had at home so I think I’m gonna use that for the locket brooch! ;D
Here’s two better views of the fabric:
And a comparance between the “old” and the “new” fabric:
