In my small town a founding families home is now a small museum. They display some of Mrs. Borst's clothing. I was thrilled to find these dresses. I was told she ordered her clothing from overseas. I know the black dress has some type of tape lace and the other piece is Irish crochet. I am not sure on the blue dress what type it is , can someone tell me? Also how old does does magazines have to be for the copyright to no longer be valid. I have several old magazines. The one I am holding in my hands is from 1949.

I looked at the sites you posted. I can see what you mean but you sure need eagle eyes. :)

I thought maybe it was machine made because of the bars in the loops

The first one is a Battenberg type tape lace. A straight woven tape with simple needle lace stitches in between the loops of the tape.

But all the other photos are chemical lace, designed to imitate Irish crochet. They are good imitations, but not Irish crochet. The fuzziness of the edges of each little bit helps determine that.
