Crochet de Luneville Embroidered Gold and Silver Feather Motifs
Crochet de Luneville Feather Motifs in Gold and Silver Metallic Thread
If you’re familiar with crochet de Luneville, the art of haute couture embroidery also known as tambour embroidery, you’ll know that chain stitch embroidery is not an easy technique to master. This is exceptionally so when it comes to using metallic threads.
Metallic threads can be very unforgiving when it comes to using a tambour embroidery hook, but once the technique is mastered and the correct size hook is used, the effect can be absolutely brilliant!
Having finished embellishing the neckline and opening edge of the right front panel of the vintage Jeanne Paquin couture jacket, it seems appropriate that this beautiful crochet de Luneville embroidery be repeated on the left side of the neckline as well.
THE RIGHT FRONT JACKET
The embroidery on the right front panel features the same motifs of feathers stitched in gold and silver metallic threads yet set amongst Swarovski crystals and three dimensional beaded flowers.
Here’s a look at the right front panel part way through its production. This is going to be an exceptional vintage couture jacket indeed!
