The laces are charming but I don’t know what to do with them! This is the main reason why up to now I have not done anything with crocheted Bruges lace. Perhaps soon, I will finally take up the courage to make a blouse or a dress or a shawl with it. Recently, Duplet announced the release of its latest magazine on making Bruges Lace.
The blouse constructed with Brugge laces as shown on the cover of the magazine is truly beautiful. The magazine has plenty of photographs of examples of the use of Brugge laces for garments.
The diagrams show how the crocheted laces are shaped and joined together to form garments, some basic shapes and as trims for various home items. I can imagine that these basic constructions can also be used to make crocheted jewellery and accessories.
Bruges is a town in Belgium. The town is known for the special bobbin lace that is produced there. The Bruge laces we see here in Duplet are the crocheted versions of those laces. The crocheted laces have a distinct beauty of their own.
Duplet has 3 special magazines dedicated to the Brugge Lace and you may find them here.
