5 Yards Antique Embroidered Inset Trim, 1920s or earlier, Cotton Bobbinet with Seafoam Green, Bluebird Blue and Pale Rust

Item details

Gorgeous inset trim for an early 20s (or post WW1) summer dress - one of those easy, sort of loose and shapeless cotton ones which have been seen on the Beeb (BBC) costume dramas recently. This would look terrific as inset on a dark salmon, cadet blue or pale green muslin dress, or trimming a satin plisse lightweight cardigan jacket.

There's a minimum of 5 yards (probably a few inches more) on this old bolt. The embroidered area is 1 3/8" wide, and there is a scant 1/4" of bobinette on each edge for sewing in or turning under.

The piece is surprisingly strong for its age - I gave it a good tug and heard no cracking or tearing sounds. It's been stored in the dark, in a trunk, for at least 30 years. No idea where it was before that!

Condition is Very Good vintage. I do find most of my merchandise at flea markets, auctions, estate sales and thrift shops. They come to you from my smoke-free, pet free environment. However, I offer these in 'as is' condition, so please ask questions before you purchase.

Thanks for visiting my shop!

Note that due to time constraints, I only ship two or three times a week. If you need something shipped more quickly, please contact me first to be sure that I'm able to meet your needs so that neither of us is disappointed.

I will ship to most countries, but if you're not certain please feel free to contact me before you purchase. Unfortunately, insurance through the US Postal System is not available except at the most expensive shipping rates for mailing internationally.

If my shipping cost estimate was over the actual cost by more than $2.00, I will refund the overage to you.

I'm happy to combine shipping for items if you purchase them at the same time.


I accept payment via PayPal and Etsy Direct Checkout.

If you choose to cancel a purchase before I've shipped it, I will refund your full purchase price plus any shipping fees that you've paid. Cancellations after shipping will be handled on a case by case basis, and please convo me for a solution.

Returns & exchanges
I gladly accept returns
Contact me within: 7 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 14 days of delivery
I don't accept exchanges or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
My items are sold 'as is', in vintage, pre-owned and / or used condition. I try to describe any problems that I find, and I will only refund if I have grossly misrepresented the condition or size of an item. In this situation, I will refund only after the item has been returned to me (and received) in the condition that it was shipped in.

Etsy policy requires that Sellers be responsible for refunds due to shipping loss or damage. Given this reality, I am adding appropriate insurance to all shipping prices in order to protect both of us. For Priority Mailing, this would mean any item valued over $50 US. (As I am selling unique items, I'm not able to offer an identical or similar replacement, obviously.)

In the rare case that your parcel arrives damaged, or the item has been damaged in transit, you MUST take photos of the damage and upload them for me ASAP, in order for me to file an insurance claim. I'm sorry, but no photos = no refunds.

Additional policies

If you are purchasing with a deadline in mind, please check with me first to be sure that I can accommodate your needs. It will save disappointment on both of our sides. (For instance, holiday or birthday gifts, film shoot, rehearsal needs, etc.)
