My submission for this challenge is the lace collar I crocheted for my Copper Penny Dress.
I don’t know why I took the photo from the back of the dress. But you get the idea.
The Challenge: 13 lace and lacings
Fabric: cotton thread
Pattern: from a vintage pattern book
Year: The pattern would be 1950s or 1960s
How historically accurate is it? I would say 80-100%. They did use lace collars, it was lady like to crochet-even in the upper classes, the thread is cotton. The only thing I’m iffy on is if the pattern is too modern. I think it is plausible. There was nothing to wild as far as stitches go.
Hours to complete: @10
First worn: the Mother’s Day fashion show at work
Total cost: I got the thread at a thrift store and I didn’t use it all…may be $1?
