Whether you’re looking to finish a handmade garment with a touch of old-fashioned elegance, or simply want to create a beautiful piece of lace for the future, this pattern is the perfect place to start.
I love when designs just happen, without much planning. I needed something extra to trim the hem of a dress I'm refashioning, so this lace was born.
Bamboo thread is one of my favorite fibers to use. It's soft and has a very slight pearly sheen to it. Wait until you iron the lace, too - the way it flattens and opens up is heavenly.
To make this lace, you will need a size 3 (1.9mm) steel crochet hook and one skein of Aunt Lydia's Bamboo Crochet Size 10.
The pattern is available for $7.00 on Ravelry: buy now

Keep checking back for pictures of the finished dress! I'm hoping to finish it by the end of the week at the latest, so stay tuned!
