Dainty Handkerchief Edgings: This pattern gives directions to crochet the edgings shown. There are four designs, all very easy - beginner appropriate. Although designed for handkerchiefs, these would also be nice for lingerie.
This is a Mail Order pattern purchased through newspapers. The pattern is Needlework Bureau 150 - Vintage 1938. It was also release as X-150 by Ellen Bruce in 1940. The official newspaper description: With the vogue for enormous handkerchiefs or such wisps as can scarcely be seen, crocheted designs are enjoying a wide popularity as a simple yet decorative finish to an otherwise utilitarian object. Each of the four edgings may be done in little time, since they are not complicated, by a variety of stitches. A fine white chiffon hankie does a lot to keep the angora of a bolero from shedding on the dancing partner's evening clothes.
