It is rare for a garment to be made of tatted lace. Unlike knitting or crocheting, the lace has no give, and its use is limited to items that don’t need to stretch. It is perfect for masks. Even though the see-through quality of the lace seems to be revealing, it maintains the anonymity required by the wearer.
