Plimoth Sampler - Detached Buttonhole Needlelace

I have done detached buttonhole before but never as needlelace.

Part of the outline is worked as back stitch, and part of the outline is a couched thread. After the detached buttonhole with reverse is completed, the couching stitches are removed so that part of the buttonhole 'fabric' is released from the background fabric.

Happy Stitching
