I am in love with these Victorian crochet necklaces, and back tanks and I was wondering if there are free patterns for these?
Or how I should even begin to make these?

The first one reminds me a lot of romanian lace; basically you make a tape with fine thread and crochet, baste it on a piece of fabric to make the outline of the shapes you want, and fill up the gaps with needle lace. You can see some examples of romanian lace here : http://lacismuseum.org/romanian_lace.html. I think you can find old books on point lace on the antique pattern library page ; this one looks perfect : http://www.antiquepatterns.dreamhosters.com/BrownPrisBatt.pdf  ( be careful, the pdf is 7mo) . There is another one that's wonderful, but it's in french. As for the tape, I make it like fondation single crochet  ( http://snuffykin.livejournal.com/43642.html ) but there is other methods.

I'm trying to make a neck corset with this technique. If it's a success, I'l let you know  Smiley
