This sewing chatelaine is not a show stopper, but it does have an interesting story.

The cover fabric is embroidered ivory cotton that was once a lady's jabot - rather old fashioned, really. The feature I liked best about the jabot was the tiny crochet covered buttons, which I removed and repositioned on the scissors case and needle case. To add a bit of fancy, I canabalized a remnant of bobble lace to make the flowers on each case.The chain is detachable. If you are looking for a sturdy chatelaine without attitude, here you are. It would make a thoughtful gift for any woman - daughter, granddaughter, daughter-in-law, dear friend, or maybe for yourself. Every woman could use an extra pair of embroidery scissors for all of life's small snips.

Scissors and needle threader included. Comes boxed.

Scissors case: length 5"
Needle case: 2' x 1 1/2'
