A while ago I posted pictures of my handmade mid-Victorian needlerun Limerick lace day cap and here are now close-up pictures of the lace. Some of the following pictures are of the right, some of the wrong side of the lace cap: As you can see both sides are very similar.
Inspired by antique Victorian Limerick lace, I drew a lace design. Then I embroidered the cotton bobbinet tulle with non-mercerized cotton thread.
Floral lace designs were very popular for Victorian Limerick lace.
The edge of Victorian Limerick lace was often finished with crochet stitches.
