This is a replica from my original bridal handkerchief. It got stolen when I once gave classes at the Teaching Museum in Hapeville, Georgia where I also had several pieces of my lace work on display for: "THREADS OF LIFE: INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S TEXTILE ART" for Georgia State University.
Not a pleasant experience, especially for such a sentimental piece of work... But I did have the Burda pattern and made one again. Over the years I've done several bridal handkerchiefs for loved ones. A labor of love one might say. Very fine DMC thread and a thin crochet needle is being used for this type of lace work.
Do you like it?
Somebody else must have liked the original too, as it was snatched from the table where I had my display during my day of classes... Below this post you find a link, you just scroll down to: "THREADS OF LIFE: INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S TEXTILE ART"

With of course an added Gardenia blossom and some perfect pink rosebuds in a French Baccarat perfume bottle.
Roses, Gardenia and Lace make up for some very romantic items...
These lovely home grown roses are in a French crystal Baccarat perfume bottle.
This is the Burda pattern, the number 307/54 is the one I made...
