In keeping with the accessories I have been making this week, I created this vintage inspired crochet lace collar. Add a bit of dimension and flair to a plain sweater or top with this elegant scalloped design that is reminiscent of days gone by, yet it is brought to life in contemporary fashion. I paired it with a jewel brooch for an extra vintage touch because that’s how I roll! Have fun with it!
Lace collars have a long history in fashion. I always enjoy finding something vintage and putting a new modern spin on it, yet keeping the historic essence of the piece.
