Corded Lace

Lace that has a thin ivory cord so to speak sewn into the pattern. A lot of lace patterns sometimes come in both options, the corded version a little bit more decadent. The ones below are the same pattern for example, one with cording and one without. The one on the right has also had it's eyelashed edge removed. (see below)

Eyelashing
