I’ve always wanted to try this accessory pattern – intended to ‘add a fresh note’ to your 1930s secretary dress, or in other words to hide the fact that you were wearing the same dress every day! – so I made up the set of collar and cuffs to try with my Jessie Matthews dress
It’s actually fairly simple crochet lace: only a three-row pattern, of which one row is just plain treble. But I’m proud of my home-made crochet buttons.
Chiltern crochet cotton – dyed with teabags!
