The official description: "It is even handsomer than the sketch car begin to show as the Irish roses of the design are crocheted in pale pink and are set on a lacy, cobwebby background of pure white. Toucan crochet the pillowcase insert in this two-color combination or in all-white, as you prefer. A gift of trousseau linens consisting of pillowcases, dresser and dressing table scarves decked out in this fine design would be a gift, indeed! Mrs Anne Cabot"
