Vintage Linen Petticoat upcyled in to pillow

My 83 year old mother in law gave me her mother's slip from the late 1800's. She was cleaning out to move into a studio apartment. It was a half slip made of cotton, with wide lace inserts and hemline. Rather than store away, I used the fabric and lace to make a pillow. I added her Aunts broach to the bow. I returned her Mom's slip pillow, immediately she knew where the materials came from. She displays this on her bed in her new home.
