Old Featherstitching on Linen

This Featherstitching was on an old Linen Pillowcase. 

Real Linen, as in Linen fabric.

Oh to have had this Pillowcase brand new.  With gorgeous lace, fine hemstitching and beautiful featherstitching.  Who wouldn't have sweet dreams?
When the Pillowcase wore out, they must have cut off the end to save the lace.
But if you look closely at the top you can see that they cut right through the featherstitching! :(
