Wow Tatting

Have you ever seen a piece of tatting that's just breathtaking? NO? Then take a look at the wonderful pictures sent to me this morning. Patricia Estrugo sent me these photos of a wedding veil she tatted, that was so glamorous it took part in a fashion show.That picture is a tease, because as we all know, tatters want to see the lace not the model.

Better? No, I didn't think you'd like this view either.

How about this one? Isn't it Gorgeous!?


Here's the view with the front of the dress. Spectacular aren't they? Finally a picture of Patricia taken at the show with the designer of the piece.

Patricia speaks Spanish and her note to me in Spanish doesn't include much more information than that the pictures were taken at the fashion show and that she had tatted the veil. For those of you who do speak Spanish, this is the entire email.

VELO DE NOVIA TEJIDO POR MI

LES MANDO UNA FITIS DEL DESFILE DE VERONICA ZAPATA PARA QUIEN TEJI EN FRIVOLITE EL VELO DE NOVIA QUE LES PARECA, AL FINAL ESTOY YO CON LA DISE√ĎADORANO SABEN LA EMOCION QUE SENTI AL VER ALGO HECHO POR MI DESFILAR DELANTE DE LA GENTE Y LAS CAMARAS DE LA PRENSA ESPERO LES GUSTE

I have written to her asking for more information, but with the language barrier I'm not sure how much more information I'll get.

Edited to add:

I got the bsic information on what Patricia was saying by using the internet translator. HJ added the full translation in the comments.

That veil is absolutely gorgeous! That's the thing about tatting; it's beautiful in ANY language! Thanks for sharing it on your blog! :)

This is also known as a mantilla (man-tee-ya.) 'Course my spelling is probably all wrong. I wore my Aunt's for my wedding, not as ornate as this one, nor was it hand made. But when I first learned tatting this past year, I had a thought of doing something like that for my daughters. But I didn't think of doing the whole thing, just edging some sheer material with the tattting. This pic is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

Hi, Sharon

Here is a translation both ‘literal’ and (meaningful) of Patricia Estrugo’s email.

WEDDING VEIL ‘KNITTED’ (MADE) BY ME

I SEND YOU SOME PHOTOS OF VERONICA ZAPATA’S ‘PARADE’ (FASHION SHOW) FOR WHOM I ‘KNIT’ (MADE) A WEDDING VEIL IN TATTING [aka Frivolite in Spanish]. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF IT? AT THE END I AM WITH THE DESIGNER. ‘KNOW’ (IMAGINE) THE EMOTION THAT I FELT UPON SEEING SOMETHING MADE BY ME ‘PARADE’ (SHOWN) IN FRONT OF PEOPLE AND THE CAMERAS OF THE PRESS. I HOPE YOU LIKE IT.

It's beautiful. I love it.
I can imagine as Patricia Estrugo felt when saw the veil tatted by her at Veronica Zapata model's show. Veronica Zapata is a bolivian designers, if I'm not wrong.
Congratulation.
