VINTAGE SOUTHERN BELLE COLONIAL LADY CROCHETED & EMBROIDERED BY HAND LACE SKIRT PILLOW CASE - 1 INDIVIDUAL PILLOW CASE
I love this vintage pillow case as it is so feminine and it is one of my very favorites! Recently I was fortunate enough to come across a number of beautiful pillow cases and will be putting them on my site in the near future.
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 anymore and it is difficult to find these crocheted Southern Belle pillow cases.
The vintage pillow case is from the '50s or '60s when people did this detailed type of work and life was a lot slower and not so hectic. It measures approximately 19-1/3" x 26-1/2" including the white crocheted lace hem front and back.
The Southern Bell lady has been beautifully hand embroidered with a floral bonnet in blue which matches her blue dress. There is a brim on the picture hat to protect her fair complexion. She is wearing a beautiful off the shoulder gown in blue to match the hat. Her hair is golden and done with French knots and peeks out from below the bonnet. Her 8” wide white crocheted skirt has large scallops on the bottom and flares out. There is a multitude of colorful flowers on both sides of her.
The pillow case will come to you freshly laundered, lightly starched and ironed and ready for you to put on your bed. It is in very good condition and look as though it has not been used much. The pillow case feels like nice soft cotton.
I mix and match my single vintage crocheted lace pillows when I only have one of a kind and it is a very pretty look.
This vintage heirloom hand crocheted pillow case would make a guest room look beautiful, make a wonderful housewarming gift with another crocheted pillow, create a shabby chic look to a bedroom or a gift to someone who loves vintage linens.

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.
