Great Great Aunty Mary

My family has inherited the most amazing box of handmade lacy that my great great aunt made however many millions of years ago. The box is full of masses of beautiful, hand made lace collars and table cloths and doilies...it really is a spectacular legacy. Unfortunately, they are irreplaceable and fragile and difficult to use in projects without damaging them, since they were hardly designed with 21st century fashion in mind. Here are a few images of a few pieces which I have hand-stitched VERY CAREFULLY onto an old coat from Boden...should come somewhere in the colour lace trend for fall this year.
