Hankie Dress



After being inspired by a shop on Etsy, I had to make Juliette a Hankie Dress. I'm not exaggerating when I say this dress took an hour from start to finish. I just started with a dress from Target, removed the bow, added lace hankies and 10" squares of fabrics to the skirt, some pleated fabric at the shoulders and a doily or two hand appliqu├ęd on. I don't know If I've ever had so many compliments on something so easy to make.  It does help to have such an adorable baby wearing it (in my humble opinion).

Etsy is one of my favorite places to get ideas. Where do you go to get inspired?

I admire your restraint, I see something on etsy, think for a moment, "I can make that" then hit the buy button and say Done! I never have to leave my chair and I own it! Hahahaha! Your little munchkin is so beautiful and the dress is so funky and sweet!
