Vintage embroidered whitework border

This is one of the "scraps" I bought at Brocante aan de Yssel a few weeks ago. (I tried to take pictures of the other pieces as well, but those images didn't turn out the way I wanted too :-) It's a long strip of whitework embroidery, maybe cut off from a night dress or something. I saw some aprons with this type of embroidery too. I don't know what time frame this is from, but it would be a really cute border on a nightgown like this.
