"Broderie Anglaise is a type of whitework needlework that usually features eyelets and buttonhole stitches. I always confused eyelet with broderie anglaise, but broderie anglaise is more elaborate and much more time consuming and often features floral patterns." It became popular in the 19th century in England and may have come or been inspired from the delicate and ornate Ayrshire needlework (Scotland). Broderie anglaise was mostly used on linens, undergarments, and christening gowns.
#Broderie anglaise (French) or "English Embroidery" (in Dutch: Engels kant) is a "whitework needlework" technique incorporating features of embroidery, cutwork and needle lace that arose in England in the 19th century. White-work embroidery is one of the techniques employed in heirloom sewing for blouses, christening gowns, baby bonnets, and other small articles.
