GORGEOUS VINTAGE HEIRLOOM CROCHETED & EMBROIDERED BY HAND SOUTHERN BELLE PILLOW CASES IN DESIRABLE PINK SHADES - 1 PAIR - RARELY USED
These gorgeous vintage pillow cases are 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 Midnight Glamour 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 any more and it is difficult to find pillow cases in this wonderful condition. Just pristine!
The vintage pillow cases are from the '50s or '60s when people did this detailed type of work. They have been made from pillow case tubing (no side seams but with a sharp crease on the sides) measure approximately 20-5/8" x 30" not including the pink crocheted lace hem.
The Southern Bell lady has been beautifully hand embroidered with a wide brim picture hat to protect her fair complexion. She is wearing a beautiful gown with a blue sash which has been accented with French knots. The hand crocheted part of the skirt from the top to bottom measures 5" vertically and approximately 9" - 10" across the bottom of the skirt depending on where it is measured.
The pillow cases will come to you freshly laundered, lightly starched and ironed and ready for you to put on your bed. They are in very good condition and look as they have rarely been used or washed.
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.
