Last Victorian Lady

I finished my last Victorian lady.  I'm over Victorian ladies for now.  It was just a phase.  But I must say this one is my favorite pattern.
Motif  # 6

 I love her full skirt.  I did the bottom layer in white to suggest petticoats.  I did her in red, white and blue to get rid of a lot of leftover thread from tatting American flags, so she is my patriotic Victorian lady.  I got this pattern here after seeing her on Marie's blog. The design is by Riet Surtel-Smeulders.
She's done in Lizbeth size 20.
Now it's on to crosses and doilies for Christmas presents.  I started my Christmas tatting in May this year so that I won't be so rushed this fall.  With a nice, cool, rainy day outside (very unusual for Texas in July), I hope to get some tatting done.


  1. Cute! I especially love her skirt! I wish we still wore clothes like that...sometimes! :)
