Irish Lace Vest

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?! @;)

 

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
