I trimmed the yoke overlay with lace edging along the bottom edge. A 1" space was left between the lace edging and lace insertion for the embroidery. The holly berries are spaced 1/2" apart and were worked with one strand of DMC floss. The berries are Granito Knots worked with 5 stitches and the leaves are Filled in Lazy Daisies. Instructions for the stitches can be found in the "Heirloom Embroidery Book."
