>Bolero Romanian Point lace pattern circa 1900

>

the whole bolero

I have been working on my storage unit the last few days.  I plan to get back tot eh tutorial for heirloom sewing in the next few days.  I have been working on this a little at night right before going to bed and while watching movies.  It has a long way to go.  I hope it fits it should but if not I guess my dress forms will be well dressed as if they aren’t already.

partially laid cords

Originally this was supposed to be done in battenberg lace.  I may make one in battenberg as well but I wanted one in Romanian point lace.  I have lots of supplies from 1900 so if I made one it would be made out of the old linen tapes and such that I own.  I just am not fond of the care involved in a battenberg jacket.  Because Romainan cord is thicker it never needs ironing and has a personality all its own.

where I am working at the moment

A pattern at this price would not happen today.  This pattern is circa 1900.

circa 1900 this price would never happen today

UPDATE
I person in my flickr groups posted a tutorial on her blog she makes her cord different than I was taught so I do not know if hers unravels easy I will have to try her way and see.

But here is the link if you are wanting to learn to do this type of lace. Let her know I sent you take care and have fun making lace.  She has step by step instructions and a video of the cord like I do
