Trend: Richelieu

Broderie Anglaise or Richelieu is a whitework needlework technique incorporating features of embroidery, cutwork and needle lace embroidery that arose in England in the 19th century.
Broderie Anglaise is characterized by patterns composed of small holes or eyelets bound with overcast or buttonhole stitches.

Models with Richelieu elements were shown on different Spring-Summer 2012 fashion shows:

Richelieu lace making is effortful but nothing is impossible for crocheters,
even Richelieu can be imitated.
You will find tons of patterns in Duplet Special XL Richelieu release
and now I am adding some additional "technical" pictures of the Red Coat (Duplet 131)
