Edited to add: I have posted the directions to my lace here.

I’ve been playing around with crochet lace for a linen blouse I plan to sew,  modifying the Fan Bookmark pattern. On the right is what started out as the regular pattern as I gradually dropped stitches to get it to a width I wanted.

The left is what I’ve ended up with. I’m still not sure if I am going to sew this on in a vertical strip down the shirt (think of a guayabera) or if it will be slanted horizontally as if on the shirt’s yoke. The hook is 1.75 mm and the thread is cotton size 10 (South Maid is the brand).
