Hankie Couture

by Marsha Greenberg

Hankie Couture Synopsis

What is Hankie Couture ? A stunningly original collection of doll-sized fashions- everything from pajamas to wedding gowns- meticulously crafted from vintage handkerchiefs. Accented with slyly witty Hankie Couture girl philosophy, this book is a stylish showcase of 125 unique fashions and accessories. It is also a how-to guide that allows you to transform treasured heirlooms or colourful flea-market finds into one-of-a-kind fashion ensembles. Whether it's a floral sundress that fans out as it twirls, an apron dress with a scalloped border, or a neatly pin-tucked linen dress with pearl buttons, the book encompasses a seemingly infinite variety of exquisite dresses. Neither crafters nor doll collectors have ever seen a book like this, making Hankie Couture a uniquely irresistible challenge to crafters. And with its beautiful design and kitschy lifestyle advice, this makes a great gift book.
