This vintage silk fabric has two embroidered collars machine stitched onto it. Please note the intricate designs, use the zoom feature. In the fourth photo I photographed it with a pink fabric behind it to show the sheerness of the fabric, which I believe to be silk. It is an off-white or ecru color. It has been freshly laundered and pressed. There are no stains and just one small hole that is not near the designs. What an elegant finishing touch to your handmade garments! The collars could also be beaded and finished as an accessory to wear with dresses, blouses, or sweaters.
The size of the entire piece of fabric is 35 inches(selvage) X 42 inches so there is plenty of fabric to use as a lining or for another small project.
The size of the one-piece design collar in photo #5 is 17 1/2 inches at the widest part. The design is a delicate outline satin stitch accented with a flower and leaf pattern.
Photos #3 & #4 show the two parts of the second collar which has beautiful drawn thread accents as well as an intricate embroidered design of flowers and leaves. They each measure 12 X 4 inches. Please use the zoom feature to view the details of this item.
Please contact me and I will be glad to email you more photos or information. I found this item difficult to photograph to show it's uniqueness and beauty.
