First, I found this sweater that my mother made - it appears that the trim is knitted and the main part is some form of crochet. Very see-thru (and rather risque for the times I think).
and a close-up...
I've never seen that particular pattern before.
AND, wonder of wonders...
I suspect this baby dress might have adorned my baby body, but not sure on that one. The detail is amazing (and yes, I know it would benefit from a good ironing).
Two more baby dresses, both of which were mine. They are both very sheer and (horrors!!!!) pink. Yuck. Obviously when I wore them I was too young to have any say in what went on my body!!
And the find of the day - a wonderful apron that I know was made by my maternal grandmother. She knitted the most incredible lace and it features prominently on this piece.
And a close-up of the trim.
Now the question arises, what does one DO with such stuff? The apron is a keeper, but what do you suggest I do with the dresses? There are actually several more, along with matching slips. The fabric isn't in great shape (except for the first little dress and the apron), so don't think they would be wearable.
