Collars for Sweaters

This was made by mother for me to wear with a dress or sweater. I guess it was the last thing she ever crocheted for me. Just look at that sweet button. It has been put up with things remembered about my mother, I don't think I ever wore it, they were out of style when she made this and I didn't do sweater then. Some time in the late 70's.
This was angora so soft, I think made from rabbit.

This was a Battenburg Lace Collar

Hi Patsy, your's mom hand work is so pretty. I notice in all the portraits of my grandmothers, aunts etc., how popular these lace or crocheted collars were. Thank you for sharing such a treasure with us today.

Patsy, they are just precious!
I had one of the Battenburg Lace ones and wore it all the time. I remember taking two home to England, and everyone asking me to send them one when I returned to the USA.
What beautiful memories.

I had some of those too. I had forgotten all about them. They will come back in style, everything does.
Such wonderful treasures and memories.

I have a picture of my Mom. sitting on the front porch in a black dress... with a beautiful organdy "collar" It's my favorite picture of her. These were so popular then. I also remember wearing hats and gloves and going downtown to eat at the YWCA cafeteria.Thanks for bringing back those memories of a simpler time.
