Thanks Loreli for the link on April 14th.  I've struggle with starting the padding cord & her photos have helped.

You must see this.  She does spectacular Irish crochet and shows many sequential photos so you can understand how she achieved the effects.

I am wondering if anyone following this lace type would be able to help me.  In 1969 I crocheted a long sleeved blouse made of Irish Crochet squares with wide ruffles on the sleeves and as a collar and jabot.  Some years ago I found the pattern I saved was not complete - now I can't even seem to find it at all.  Perhaps I gave up trying to contact the publishers of Women's Day, the source of the pattern.  It was in a booklet I ordered from them.  I would love to find that complete pattern again.
