I hope you like it. It is lace: weight: 100g, I used 390 m of 100% mercerized cotton thread:D.

And I have one more skein,  so it will be a full crafting weekend.

I started in the middle with a braid:

The first one.

And this is the scheme for stitches:

Now the flowers. I adapted some which I found on Internet:

floare fusta skirt flower

These are pretty close, without last rounds.

And I made  a border with fans:

I still can’t decide which one I like more, so just choose one:D

The little flowers from the top:

I made 3-4 different flowers, you can choose any flower or color you like:
