Lace Making

 

Lace-making was one of the home-making skills that were a major part of a Victorian girl’s education. Most would have been taught sewing, embroidery and dressmaking.
 
 Women were expected to devote such time as they had to spare from other domestic duties on dressmaking for themselves and their children, altering and mending clothes, crocheting antimacassars, doilies and table-runners, embroidering table-cloths, napkins and tray-cloths, knitting, and making lace for trimming the collars and cuffs of blouses and night-dresses, or for babies’ christening gowns.
