I love vintage linens — especially pillow cases. The older cotton pillow cases were made of such a higher quality than the typical ones you’d find today. And, you can usually find a stack of these at any thrift store for less than $1.

Washed, with a small incision and addition of bias tape and voila — a garment bag to cover summer dresses during the winter, and coats during the summer. (Less dust, plus the pillow cases all lined up in the closet look rather pretty.)

  1. Hi Kelli,
    Very pretty. I love how resourceful you are! So creative!

    By the way I mailed my Vet Kits today via the post office. You should have by Monday at the latest. They are coming from NJ.

    Have a great day!

  2. Excellent idea! I made a garment bag years ago for short weekend car trips. It is super handy.

  3. You clever thing!;)

  4. Good idea! I love vintage sheets they are so much nicer on the bed too.

  5. THAT’S AWESOME! I do hope I have five friggen seconds to rub together in the future because I’d totally make these for Bubba’s suits and stuff that hang in our closet with the stupid plastic deals on them from the dry cleaner. Ugly, those.
