Here Gilian Dye reconstructs Renaissance plaited lace which in its time was applied to clothing or furnishings (e.g. cushions or curtains). Her sources included not only the relevant pattern books "Le Pompe" and "Nüw Modelbuoch" but most especially contemporary oil paintings which show the Beautiful and Powerful of that epoch in all their splendour. – with lace prickings and instructions.
