The tablecloth

 I found a beautiful vintage cross stitched tablecloth at an op shop the other day.  It's made from white linen, and the edges were a little frayed, and a lot of threads had come loose, so they had to be woven in.  A bit of a restoration job.  I wonder how old it is, and who made it?
 It was big enough to cut two dress fronts and two little skirts.  I thought it was wise to pair it with the red polka dot cotton, to make it a bit more sturdy, and less likely to stain.
 Love the outcome, the dress is available in size 2 & 3, and the skirts are size 4-6 (34cm long).  In my Etsy shop now
