Pattern for a Dickey
From Needlewoman and Needlecraft April 1954 a pattern for a crochet lace dickey to go under a jacket.  It was simply a 'shirtfront' secured with a ribbon tie at the back.  There is a left and right front and a ruffle, but no sleeves and no back, so although it's crocheted in No. 20 crochet cotton it could represent quite a quick project for the experienced crocheter.

She does look rather lovely.
