Materials: Fine lace braid or cord;
Messrs. Walter Evans and Co.'s Mecklenburg thread No. 24.
This border is suited for a
handkerchief or for trimming a square bodice. The braid is not tacked
on by stitches running through the centre, as is usual in point lace
braids, but sewn on by passing a thread from underneath over the braid
and out through the same hole, as is done by lace-workers with a thick
thread; this forms the design. The stitches employed in this pattern
are Raleigh bars, which connect the work; Sorrento edging, which
finishes the whole outline; English rosettes filling the open spaces.
Point lace cord may be used for this in place of braid.
