Are ya ready for another one of my creations?

Here are three very grubby and prim dresses I made. These are probably one of the grubbiest things I have made, or maybe not! The dress part is sleeveless, and I used a linen type fabric. I gruubied it up with coffee and spices and let them dry on clothesline outside in the sun. The little jackets are ragripped and sewn. The sleeves go out straight, because I put a small branch from one of our trees through them like a hanger. I tied a loop on the twig in the same material as the dress. I have alittle tag that says prim dress on it with a little safety pin. These dresses are 18 inches long, and a little close to 17 inches across the sleeves.

There two with ticking material jackets, one is alittle lighter blue, and the other one is more navy. And one has little hearts that are mauve with a lighter blue print. I loved making these. There is just something about prim dresses I love. I also have some smaller ones made from calicos and homespun I will show you next. I wanted to get my etsy started, but due to me having to have surgery on this Friday, it has put me behind. Any of my creations you see you are interested in just let me know. I'll be back soon with the little dresses!!
