Dear Sharron-

What type of fabric did you use? I do thread crochet lace, and tried using
my size 14 steel hook. It didn't like cotton broadcloth. I assume one needs
a looser weave? The Regency dresses I've seen in museums with tambour work
are usually a light airy loosely woven muslin, so I'm curious to know if
you've had luck with firmer or tighter fabrics?

day dress for herself....)
