Lady's camisole with filet crocheted top, drawstrings, and armholes
Filet crocheted camisole made by Alice E Cleland (1864-1938) Middletown, Dauphin Co, PA, USA for her own use. The filet crochet contains a Greek Key design, bordered by mesh lace and scallops. The camisole itself is of soft cotton. The edges are held together with drawstring ties, and there are drawstrings around the armholes for a "better" fit. Honestly, I never thought I would inherit my great grandmother's underwear.
