We were invited to exhibit our Lace Sensor Dresses at the StAnza Poetry Festival in St Andrews, Scotland. The festival ran from 6-10 March 2013 and Anja went to represent our project.

To make the layer thick I made in itself two layer of embroidered feld together.
The layers are getting thicker now, so I used a padded piece of cotton with top-stitching following the original lace pattern.
How to get to a thicker string? I just remembered a cord-making technique I used to do as a child. With this cord I followed the rough form of the lace and the previous layer.
I used a large abstract silk applique for this round.
I used the line of Meg’s embroidery and went on embroidering with a thicker thread interpreting the motif of the lace.
This round started with Anja’s pencil sketch on super-thin chiffon layer which I used as a guide for my embroidery.
I used a thin layer of chiffon for the first round. I started simple and quick, making a pencil sketch of the lace motif directly on the fabric.
