  1. That’s so sweet! I love the idea of one in my size for the spring. I still have a bunch of vintage cases from my grandmother too! Thanks so much for this, I’ll be linking.

  2. I can totally see this look as one that would look really great on a lot of adults, too–not me, but a lot of other adults. I warn you, though–those vintage linen pillowcases are a little on the thin side, know what I mean? Slips and linings are our friends!
