The final round!
In order to get this layer really thick I made a kind of loopy carpet. It also follows the curved wave shape that we see coming back in almost every layer.
The layers are getting thicker now, so I used a padded piece of cotton with top-stitching following the original lace pattern.
I wanted to make a raised layer in the form inspired by the original lace pattern.
I used a large abstract silk applique for this round.
I stitched an approximation of the lace pattern on top of the previous layer.
This round started with Anja’s pencil sketch on super-thin chiffon layer which I used as a guide for my embroidery.
