Antique Textiles - Lace Craftsmanship V
There was a group of excited students today who could not concentrate for thinking about Kate Middleton's wedding dress. I was telling one of them about our recent granny's attic trove and that we had found the sleeves of her wedding dress from 1935. Unfortunately, the main part of the dress has not survived but these handsewn sleeves are made from silk tulle net with hand beaded cuff motifs and are lovely.
