This seam embellishment was worked along the edge of some vintage lace which I hand dyed. The edge was not in good condition so I first covered it with a thin satin ribbon. I then stitched a row of Herringbone worked in DMC pearl 5. This row of stitching acted as a base for lacing with blue rayon ribbon floss using the same lacing technique as in a Twisted lattice band.
A row of detached chain arranged in a fan of three stitches, was worked in DMC pearl 8. These were worked in a zig zag formation along the side of the laced herringbone. At the base of every second detached chain cluster I used a small flower shaped jewellery finding with a single small bead stitched in the centre. On the top of the herringbone there is a small bead stitched.
I then threaded a fine knitting ribbon through the lace with a single detached chain stitched at the base of each scallop. What was a tatty piece of lace is now a feature on a block.
