SUMMARY- This book is all about incorporating tatting into clothing, or as clothing. The only copy I've found is in German. I liked the first book of hers I'd run across, and have had my eye out for more. Here's the second I've found, and I'm happy I did. The photography is uneven, but her patterns are a delight. If you're daunted by foreign languages, you may wish to give it a pass, but if you don't mind typing stuff into Google Translate, I think this book is well worth the effort.
For patterns, you get: a lovely two-color heart, a small flower motif, a technique for weaving another color thread into a chain, a baby cap with doily crown, a cool 3-color deeply scalloped edging and matching oval motif, edging for linen collar, a lovely scarf or dressy bow, romantic hankie edging, Inset sleeves for dress, three more fancy scarfs, a beaded edging, a lot more edgings, and about a half dozen egg ornaments.
