Okay, here’s a thrift store find that really had me do a double take! This shirt caught my eye as I was walking past because the lace looked so much nicer than usual, though I’m not someone who can look at lace and know what I’m looking at! From a glance I thought 60s/70s but when I stopped to pick it up, the ecru lace yoke was actually part of a preexisting garment. You can see a layer of cotton was cut off the bottom and then it was slapped onto the orange fabric with an added elastic band. I did a bit of googling and this looks like it’s the top of a chemise or nightgown that maybe a hippie repurposed in 60s/70s? I don’t know how to date the lace though, seeing examples ranging from the Victorian/Edwardian to the 1930s... This is crochet lace, right? The sleeves have a scalloped edge, the neckline has a pale pink silk ribbon running through and it looks like the bottom edge is meant to have a ribbon as well. If it fits me like it should, it seems like the yoke should fall just to the bottom of the bust. I’d be curious to know what other people thought! And also, if anyone had any ideas for what to do with the lace piece, I'd love to hear them? I know that I want to pull it off the bright orange addition at least! Thanks for looking!
