Georgia Seitz shared patterns of various laces from NeedleArt Magazine, Vol 8#3 published in 1921, in The Tatting Newsletter. I thank Georgia for giving opportunity to bring out creative variations in antique lace patterns.
I have tatted two variations of the Original pattern on BellaOnline.
"Tatted Edges and Insertions for Underwear" Needleart 1921 Edging no 2
Both variations are single shuttle creations with special effect of Dot Picot Strings. Dot Picots give effect of beads when they are tatted uniformly in place of normal picots.
In the above variation, I have tatted rings with normal picots after every stitch and the chains are replaced by Dot Picot Strings.
In this variation, normal rings are replaced by Josephine Rings and chains are replaced by dot picot strings. I added dangling Dot Picot Strings with pearl at the end of each scallop.
Sharing another summer homework from The Tatting Newsletter
The Boutonniere from Antique Pattern Library
I was impressed by the frilly look of this button pattern. I replaced all normal picots by dot picots and it showed a totally different look.The Dot Picots look like beads if tatted uniformly.
Variation of The Boutonniere-
Two shuttles were loaded each with two threads simultaneously by CTM method.
I selected matching thread colors of the button for my above outfit.
It was real fun to work with two threads at a time.
Your comments, suggestions, ideas are welcome.
Wish to see you all tatting Dot Picots.......
