Shawl

Description

Rectangular white net shawl with scalloped edges and large pastel colored floral motifs. The edges of the shawl have large scallops and these scallops have small scallops on them. The entire edge has a yellow embroidered border. Inside of that border there is one large embroidered flower inside of each large scallop. These flowers are all different pastel colors and follow no pattern. The stems all face the inside of the shawl and most flowers have leaves and smaller flowers around them. On the inside and center of the shawl there are three rows of flowers, each with all the stems pointing in the same direction giving the shawl a top and a bottom orientation. The central flowers have stems and leaves and all of them differ in colors, with no pattern. The top row has five flowers, middle row has four flowers and bottom row has five flowers and they are all staggered evenly. The back is identical to the front and the embroidery was done in a way that makes the shawl reversible.
