More Modern Lace

This was another beautiful design made by the girls. The silk fabric for the dress had been hand dyed and printed and the lace was incorporated around the neck in green.


A close up of the belt around the dress - who would have thought of putting orange and green together?? But it matched the dress beautifully!


Sansepolcro is famous for lacemaking and in the old town square there is a beautiful statue depicting two ladies - one working bobbin lacemaking, with her tutor leaning over her shoulder! It really is a gorgeous monument to such an intricate age old art! I was really blessed to find this village in our travels!

  1. Isn't the lace fantastic! Aren't they clever! Wonder if we'll ever try bobbin lace again!
