What is Broderie Anglaise?

Broderie anglaise is a whitework needlework technique combining features of embroidery, cutwork and needle lace that became associated with England, due to its popularity there in the 19th century. Broderie Anglaise is characterised by patterns composed of round or oval holes, called eyelets, which are cut out of the fabric, and then bound with overcast or buttonhole stitches.
