silk, More details

In 1835 Baroness Nine van Slingelandt married Jonkheer Pieter Teding van Berkhout in Amsterdam. Unlike many of her wealthy contemporaries she did not wear a lace dress, but rather a wedding gown made of an intricately woven silk fabric that makes the illusion of lace. The fabric consists of a tulle ground to which extra threads were added to create the floral pattern.
