The design is first drawn on strong, but not too clear, mull muslin; is then traced out with coarse cotton, and afterwards overcast,the connecting links being worked in buttonhole stitch. The holes are either formed with a stiletto, or cut away with a fine poined pair of scissors as the work progresses. For underlinen or children's frocks.
