Often with Vintage pillowcases the fabric is too light for modesty. I make a tube of the same width as the pillowcase... add a ruffle that will peak out at the bottom. I cut off the top of the pillowcase and match the tube and the pillowcase at the top... I cut the armholes while they are together and press and sew the casing as if they we one piece of fabric. But I allow the side seams to be separate. I attach the pocket only to the top pillowcase... not to the lining.
Here is my latest creation... I am really into pink lately!!
Isn't the embroidery sweet!!
And a little pocket matching the two shades of pink to finish it off!!
