Definitely Holly Harp. No way is it Jean Muir- I've been collecting her for years and it is nothing like her work.

I'd have to agree with you, Laura. I'm more familiar with Holly Harp, so I wanted to play out both scenarios. But it definitely has the feel of a Holly Harp.

What I am trying to find out is how to do the hand sewn picot edging that was presumably used on this dress. Does anyone know how to do this stitch please? My mum used it a lot, but unfortunately I never learnt how to do it properly, and now it is too late to ask her.

Rachel

You're correct...the exposed seams of this evening dress are finished with picot edging. I've also wondered about this technique. I don't have any good suggestions at hand, but I'll put the word out via our social media and see if I can pull together a list of suggested sources.
