Vintage Lace from Dishy Vintage


I have to admit, I hesitated a little bit before writing this post to tell you about all the wonderful trims at Dishy Vintage. I almost wanted to save this source for myself. But that would be selfish.

Personally, I am very particular about lace. I do not like to sew with scratchy nylon lace and much prefer very fine, soft vintage laces. I have amassed quite a collection in fact, and it seems to be growing day by day.

I just bought several from Dishy Vintage and am completely in love with them! I cannot wait to use them on some super secret projects.

The photo above is a gorgeous wide net lace.

This is a lovely net lace.

Some gorgeous chemical lace remnants.

Adorable red and white seam binding (yes, that’s seam binding, not ribbon!)

A pretty net lace with roses

Vintage embroidered organza trim!

Go check out Dishy Vintage for lots more beautiful bits for your sewing.

Oooh, I love all these. I can’t believe that seam binding has to sit INSIDE a garment, not on full view, it’s too cute!


Ahhh! Just when I had decided I needed to stop buying lace (I already have one box of it). ;) lol. Thank you for introducing us to another great resource!

Oh boy, I’m in trouble. I’m a sucker for lace!


Very dreamy lace, thanks for this fabulous source – I especially love the organza and the chemical lace. Back in the day, women would remove the lace before discarding a worn-out garment. Too precious to throw out!

I don’t know if anyone watches PBS, but there is a great scene in the Masterpiece series title Cranford (an 1800s period piece) where the ladies go to great lengths to rescue some new lace. It shows just how precious lace was (and is!). :)


Thank you for the wonderful feature of my shop! It’s so great to find kindred spirits who love lace and precious old things as much as I do!


Have you ever used handmade lace? I used to make it but it does take so long to make, and is so expensive as a result…


I’ve made use of a few tatted things passed down by my grandmother, but I’ve never bought handmade lace. I’ve often thought I should try lacemaking but it does seem very laborious…


It’s relaxing but it does grow very slowly… and I know ladies making veils and strip lace for their daughters’ weddings and similar, and they have to start about 12 – 18 months in advance…!
