I handstitched this choker out of black lace and black grosgrain ribbon. The red rose braid is also handstitched on the black grosgrain. This choker ties with black velvet ribbons. I love how this lace really spreads out around the neck.
Then I made a fabric envelope to keep the choker in. It ties with the same black velvet ribbon as the choker.
I am so pleased with how this project turned out and the fact that it is ready for giving. I made it for a raffle which is coming up in early May. Proceeds not to benefit me but a fraternal organization.
I just know this will look amazing on the lovely lady who's number is drawn.
