Tatting featured in article in NYT

"An Expensive, Rustic Brand Faces Backlash for Its ‘Poverty’ Aesthetic" is a recent article in the NY Times about the elite clothing maker, Magnolia Pearl. The clothing is sold to Hollywood stars and other elites, through stores such as Free People.

In one photo the model is fingering some lace, almost as if the lace were being used as a necklace. A close look at the lace reveals that it is feet and feet of tatting! A beginner's tatting pattern at that, just a simple ring with three picots.

It's a gifted article so anyone can read it, even if they don't subscribe to the NY Times.
