I found this vintage hand-embroidered a while ago and fell in love with the soft color palette. Then I ran across a lovely peach linen hankie that matched perfectly. So after much internal debate, I decided a bubble skirt would best show off the circular design of the embroidery. The plain color bodice draws out the peach embroidery on the flowers. A rhinestone brooch and ultrasuede belt with rhinestone buckle complete the look. Available now in my Etsy shop.
This dress proves two hankies are better than one. The bodice is hand sewn from rich red silk tissue taffeta. The skirt from a printed Christmas hankie features a shaped hemline with a bow detail. Under the dress is a full petticoat made from a vintage hand embroidered hankie. A magnetic rhinestone brooch adds that little bit of sparkle. Available now in my Etsy shop.
