|Stunning green silk doublet is purfylled (embellished) in embroidery and bobbin lace. The bobbin lace braid is a fairly simple design worked with both narrow and thick threads with small picots down one side. The braid is used to edge the embroidery design which is worked on silk strips then applied to the velvet doublet.|

Two-tone lace on the Margaret Laton Jacket worked with spangles on the picots. This jacket in particular had me lusting after the lace.

I really couldn't say with any certainty what style of lace has been employed for each of these garments let alone make accurate reproductions of them, however I hope to be able to do so one day. Are you a lace aficionado? Which lace techniques do you think have been used?
