The Full Lace Collar Insert is wide enough to fit all the way round the neck and can be fastened as desired in the back. You only need 1 piece.
The Half Insert is not as wide as the full collar and only suitable as front or back piece. If you want to create a full collar, you will need two pieces. Used as 1 piece only the half insert is suitable for victorian / edwardian blouse waits and 1920s-40s blouses and dresses.
2 pieces of the half insert combine beautifully to make a large collar. The back opening has to be stichted separately.
Draped across the shoulders 2 pieces of the Half Insert form a large, attractive lace decoration suitable for blouse waists, day dresses and those ellusive edwardian lace trimmed evening gowns. They also lend a touch of luxury to 1920s-1940s blouses and dresses.
