HSF: Challenge #13-Lace and lacings.

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

Notions: none

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?
