I love going through old photos and seeing what the fashion was back in the day. This had me thinking about how fashion has changed in the years of crochet. I know it got it’s start by the making of lace, doilies and such. I then wanted to delve into the decades to see what the styles were and how they evolved through the years.

It has always fascinated me on how fashion trends have a way of coming back around. I thought it would be fun to take a trip back in time to see what those fashions were. I hope you have enjoyed taking that trip back in time with me.
As always thank you so much for taking a look and stopping by.
