One of two pieces of netted lace, one yard of tan netted lace for a ruffle and one piece about eighteen inches long of lighter tan. Both pieces are gathered by hand to curve for a neckline. (Both items have been constructed in a knotting technique that allows a great resiliency and stretch further.)
