This Irish lace piece is inspired by vintage collars that can be worn as a necklace {with a long black, sateen dress for an ultimate dramatic effect}, or as a collar over plain dresses, blouses or shirts as the inevitable vintage detail. It is crocheted in ecru, but it would also be perfect in white.
