My first irish lace project ever! I'm pretty happy about the result! It's just me or it has something from the traditional Hungarian embroidery?!  Wink

Made of recycled italian cotton, bordered with black knitted i-cord. The front is a wide black tulle shawl which makes this vest very versatile:

-let it just hang for a hippie-like look,
-or be a real "femme fatale" and cover Your hair with it,
-You can use the tulle part to protect Your shoulders from breezy nights,
-and also goth girls are welcome with this piece since it can be used as a veil!

Oh YESSS, I'll continue to learn irish lace technique, even if the netting part was killing me a little bit and I'm new to tiny crochet hooks, but when I was finally ready with this waistcoat I felt a satisfaction I never had before... Oh yes, I'm in LOVE! EX3

You always make such cool stuff!  I love the colours and the intricate design.  The tulle shawl for the front is a great idea as well.  Love it!

Stunning!! I adore everything about it - design, shape, colors. In a way, it reminds me of amoebas or bacterias under a microscope, which I love Smiley.
