Jabots and my old machine-made lace high-neck dress (almost vintage)

(my) lace, high- neck dress, size 10, 1980’s St. Michaels; marks & spencer, the skirt of this could be wefted maybe . . .extending white lace warp on ‘shoulders’ to follow through with seams of lace high-neck dress…… evokes the Nottingham Jabots I studied in Nottingham museum’s lace collections, male and female frills to cover, to hide the closure of a shirt, dress or blouse…. Can the white lace warp on shoulders be extended and weft of heather mauve pink skirt added . . . ?
