Yelets laces. Part 1.

I live in ancient Russian town Yelets which has rich history. One of local craft is making of laces. It's sharp fine work which takes part a lot of time and strength. Unfortunately I cannot do it but I know some lace makers which did their masterpieces. I present here blouse, collars and small items most of it was made by my aunt grandmother Popova Anna Nikolaevna.

White blouse - handmade vintage; skirt - noname; sweater - noname.

For more info and buying laces see websites:


  1. That is pretty good, especially first photo, but I should say it was better if you wear lace part of the blouse to your spine, it is bad taste to shaow your underwear ))

  2. Ирина, какая же красота! А блузка - это нечто удивительное! Я бы сделала платье с такой отделкой... Очень красиво!
