Anyone know what this is called or how to achieve it?



I have seen it on 40s blouses as well. I know I saw it in an old sewing book I had. I think it involves making a jig with macrame pins and looping the cording around.

Thanks!

Oh!!! Get the most recent Sew News magazine. It has an article "Vintage Variations" about Roleau appliqué or cording which is what you show. The illustrated items are applied to fabric but if you have a base of tear-away or soluble stabilizer you could lay out open work.

There are a couple of articles and tutorials on the Colette website about Rouleau here and here.
