*BEAUTIFUL HAND CROCHETED AND EMBROIDERED SOUTHERN BELLE WITH HUGE SKIRT AND PARASOL PILLOW CASES - 1 PAIR - NEW & NEVER USED
My mother and grandmother crocheted as well as embroidered decades ago and I know that this handwork of crocheting and embroidering takes quite a bit of time to do. People just do not do this hand work any more and it is difficult to find pillow cases this beautiful and in such great condition. These vintage pillow cases are from an era when people did this detailed type of work and life was a lot slower and not so hectic.
The vintage pillow cases feel like cotton but there is not a fabric label inside. They measure approximately 20" x 30" and a bit longer because of the crocheted lace hem. There is crocheting around the entire bottom of the pillow case as well.
The Southern Bell has been beautifully embroidered with a picture hat to protect her fair complexion. She is wearing a beautiful full gown in shades of blue and she is holding a blue and white parasol with a flower at the top. She is wearing a large picture hat with flowers on it. Her skirt is the widest one I have ever seen at 19" across the bottom at the widest point.
These vintage heirloom hand crocheted and embroidered pillow cases would make a guest room look beautiful, be perfect as a wedding present for a bride who loves vintage linens, a housewarming gift or create a shabby chic look to a bedroom.

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
