Lace collar and insert.

Yesterday I worked on a lace collar and insert for an Edwardian shirtwaist. The lace I used is all cotton and vintage/antique. So it has flaws and some parts are quite fragile. But old lace is so much more delicate and elegant than most modern laces available in stores. I lined the insert with white chiffon silk to protect it a little from the strain of wearing.
