These wide edgings were designed originally for those sweeping skirts of the mid 1800s but today they would work on just about any modern full skirt. Of course, they would look lovely gracing the hem on fine linens…..pillowcases and sheets.
These embroidery patterns of borders are open to interpretation. Borders can also be edgings (as edgings can be borders as well) but we’re calling a border a design that doesn’t necessarily repeat like most edgings do. Pillowcases fall into this category as do floral sprays and yes, they can repeat if you want them to!
