    frilled linen

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to give me a leg up with the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    And then, opening her eyes, how fresh like frilled linen clean from a laundry laid in wicker trays the roses looked; and dark and prim the red carnations, holding their heads up; and all the sweet peas spreading in their bowls, tinged violet, snow white, pale…..

    frilled linen = lace linen = crinkly linen

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Re: frilled linen

    Lace is what came to mind as I read it.
