As promised, I'm going to show you what hangs above the sewing machine drawer.
This is a handkerchief dress that I bought, of all places, at a neighborhood drug store. Isn't it just the cutest little thing? I love the tiny clothes hanger. Vintage handkerchiefs fascinate me, all the beautiful embroidery work and crocheted edges. I love to look at them at flea markets and antique stores, and have bought several. Even though this is not a vintage handkerchief, I couldn't resist buying it. The bodice is made of paper and the skirt is the handkerchief. For some reason this dress reminds me of paper dolls. I love paper dolls, always have. I can remember playing paper dolls for years and years, even when I thought I was too old. We used to cut the models out of the Sears catalog and design clothes for them. I don't have any of my paper dolls, wonder where they went? I have bought a few sets over the years, but honestly old paper dolls are too expensive for me.
