Lace Bodice from an Antique Corset Cover


When you see this pattern you know it’s old. In my early years I guessed it was a poinsettia but later found out it was called the spider pattern. Victorians thought spiders to be “good” bugs as well as good luck so they tried to incorporate them in all their handwork. Quilters still do this. Anyway, this piece of lace once graced a woman’s corset cover. People are now snapping them up to make camisoles and summer blouses. See the pictures for measurements. The "ladder work" under the lace around the neckline probably had a satin ribbon woven through it and tied in a small bow in the front.  It has no issues whatsoever and is ready to be made into whatever you so choose.

Hand washed, air dried and pressed.   Excellent condition. c. 1900-20
