teasing

That edging's pattern is from an old book, I've got it for a short time and I've already tatted something else from it. They write that patterns are from 1920s.

I've the perfect thread for this one, I love it, smooth and delicate. Hand dyed, it's a gift from the Colours' Fairy Fox, there's a tag but I'm going to explain the reason for the title in this post...


Just to have fun, can you guess the book, the pattern and the thread?


A clue: nobody can say who the not named author of the book is!

I hope next week I can show the finished edging and I'll show you what it is written on the back of the tag...

Ciao,

P.S. I put a picture of the dress I sewed, in this post: international drop addiction

  1. An intriguing edging. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen it before so no guesses from me!

  3. Ooh, I've made that edging before! It's number 39 in "A Tatter's Workbook," author unknown. She used to charge 10 cents a yard for making it. I'm afraid I don't know anything about the thread though.

  4. This is very lovely, and now I hope we will be able to obtain this pattern instead of just wishing we could :)

  6. It looks lovely as does your dress! Very, very nice.

    Italy is quite warm today and the wildfire on Vesuvius is pretty scary looking!

  7. Lovely edging, I think it might be by the new book you brought that you thought might only be the cover, by Gun and the surname starts with a B
