"Broderie Anglais" is a needlework technique which was popular in the nineteenth century and incorporates features of embroidery, cutwork and needle lace. The pattern itself is a series of round or oval holes called “eyelets” and are often in the style of flowers, leaves, or stems.
The technique originated in Eastern Europe in the sixteenth century but has since come to be associated with England due to its popularity - mainly in women’s clothing. It went through another boom period in the late 1950s when Bridgette Bardot wore a red and white gingham dress with Broderie Anglais trim.
