What a creative way to use a vintage piece! So much work went into that cloth and this is a beautiful way to show it off. I love to see items like this being used instead of packing them away because they are "too nice".

That is seriously cool. I go to a lot of estate sales and so often the crochet items seem to be ignored. Good for you! The original crocheter is smiling on you.

This is terrific - I love seeing old linen refashioned and your result both shows of the retro fabric and is very trendy

You should send your photo to Simplicity. Your dress is gorgeous and I would never have seen it in the pattern illustrations. I always love seeing your creations.
