Antique Camisole and Another Round!

This Camisole  I purchased at antique store.  The rounded neck line, is believed to be late 1800's
The square neck line came along at a later time early 1900's
The tatting thread was a high quality and her stitches seem so perfect, to think it just went under clothes with corset :)
This is a close up I believe the thread to be a size 30. I have not seen this pattern yet, but have seen drawings of this style.  I always wonder about the hands that made this. 
This round of  Renulek's was fun :) and less picots which makes it go by faster!  Looks like this round  almost took two full shuttles.
Thank You!

  2. It's hard to imagine that much work going into something that only one or two people would ever see! I have one that comes from my husband's family that is square-necked. Your post reminded me of it - I need to get it out and see if there is some way to display it.

    1. I know what you mean, If I had more space I would buy an old fashion looking dress form. instead, I pin it to a hanger and hang it to my wall.

  3. What a lovely piece of tatting from the past, and a great find, to wear a beautifully piece of tatting under your clothes, what a shame.
    Your doily is looking gorgeous

  4. You could wear the camisole under a see through chiffon top perhaps? Lovely. Worth copying.

    1. Yes, to were it peaks through, that would be nice because the fabric is stained so badly I was thinking of replacing it with better fabric.

  7. I am absolutely in love with the the tatting on this camisole!! If I had the pattern, I would tat it in that lovely charcoal color by Lizbeth and sew it onto black cotton, to make a light summer dress. It would be very fashionable ! What a beauty. This is why the French call tatting frivolité, because it looks great on underwear and it is quite strong in the wash!
