I have used original seam tryouts on linen on the left page.
Also her handwriting from my grandmothers poetry album. This is is printed on fine cotton, also the photo.
The black woven fabric is also vintage. The lace on the left upper corner is antique.
Don't think I am a barbarian who cut up antique laces. This are all bits and worn-out pieces which I have collected over the years. The cap on her head is sewn from this type of lace.
This cap was used on Sundays to go to the church and with special occasions such as weddings.
Those few centimeters was the best piece from a piece of 20 cm. The rest was only holes and frayed. My great-grandmother wore a gold "westfriese "( North-Holland) cap with handmade bobbin-lace from Beveren ( Belgium). If you are interested how such a cap is sewn, here is a link where you can see the whole process.
The three buttons are also antique, maybe from her dress?
My grandmother and her daughter saved everything. Thanks a lot grandma and aunt :)
As always you can click on the photos to see it large.
