For this bolero vest I've used motifs that Flora Mazi uses alot for her dresses and tops. The 4 semi-flowers were placed at a chest, neck and a waist, the rest of the cloth was filled with shamrocks, circles of different diameters and texture. All motifs were binded with a set of chain and a slipstitch over the edge, or as we call it Margarita Golubeva's edging, to give an extra volume
Here is another set of patterns for the multi-leyered flowers for irish crochet lace
Quite often The Journal of MODA (Fasion magazine, MOA) published a pattern of a butterfly wing, and many crocheters use this single element, but apart from that there are many other butterfly patterns that can be used in irish crochet lace. .
