A nightdress case

Once upon a time all ladies kept nighties in a little ‘case’ and this is one of them.

Such items gave an opportunity to show off the needlewoman’s craft so often had a variety of styles of work.

This one is in linen with a lace border. A crocheted circle design has been applied to the centre and a purple ribbon has been threaded through. We don’t have a date for this nightie case but it belonged to a White Street (Market Lavington) lady.
