Cutwork

Inspired by a tablecloth I recently inherited when my Great Great Aunt passed away, I decided to play with cutwork. The negative/positive space design was achieved through stylising a botanical drawing of tulips by Jane Loudon. When/if I re-use cutwork in my final garments, I need to be more conscious of ensuring the shapes between spaces are large enough to stabilise the fabric.
