Heirloom Inspiration: Lace Trend Spring 2008

Just browsing through spring 2008 fashion shows and I was glad to know that lace is still in fashion. I'm in love with artisan and handcraft work and this will be a good opportunity to start learning to knit and crochet or at least to start browsing more vigilantly through thrift and vintage store.

That's because not only crisp white lace is the next spring heirloom fashion trend. There is a lot of gothic "widow" black lace and pastel rococo lace. But, my favorite one is the "vintage" lace in beige and gray shades that looks like you found it in an old hope chest. You can make your own shiny lace, if you got the time, by following the pattern with metallic thread.
