Venetian Design Crochet Patterns from the July 1913 Modern Priscilla

Venetian Design Crochet Patterns from the July 1913 Modern Priscilla
This entry is part 11 of 14 in the series The Modern Priscilla - July 1913

The Edwardians were known for their lace dresses, lace shirts, lace blouses, lace underwear, lace doilies, and lace everything…. and here are some instructions and patterns for making lace!

These are patterns for making Heavy Venetian Lace Designs. Because this magazine was barely too big for my scan bed, I made 2 scans of each page- one of the top and one of the bottom. The next page is about how to incorporate heavy Venetian Lace into clothing, and gives ideas on making lace panels for blouses and yolk collars and belts. What an interesting craft!

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
