JILL SAYS: These Miniature Square Dance Dresses can be taken to Hoe-Downs, County Fairs, and make great one-of-a-kind gifts for the Boot Scootin’ Bunch.
I make each dress using a Pattern created and sold by Muriel in her Hanky Dresses Etsy Shop. A 14 inch bandana forms the skirt and features a bodice of a ruffled flounce neckline. A satin ribbon is tied at the waist. They are sold just as a fancy dress is - hung on a hanger & in it’s own miniature dress bag.
Use them for decorations at Country Western themed showers & weddings, for place settings, table centerpieces, or favors for your guests! Also, try using them to decorate a little girl’s bedroom - hang several in a row on a ribbon as a valance. So Cute!! Please convo me to tell me how many you may need or the colors you prefer & I can make a batch just for you.
Here are a couple of ways you can use the dresses as table decorations.
When the party is over, everyone has a sweet little gift to take home too.
I can definitely see these at a cowgirl bridal shower.
JILL SAYS: It seems there’s a crazy crafty person in every family & in my family that person is me - Jill Chacon. Because over the years, I have been that family member who is forever planning, creating, sewing, & crafting for everyone. But then for a while I was a seamstress at a Bridal Shop where I also developed my attraction to lace & fancy fabrics. With that in mind, I have long aspired to start a shop of my handmade items. So I combined my two affections of both crafting & fine fashion and formed Hanky Haven.
Since I find a certain charisma in the femininity of a bygone era of handkerchiefs, I became somewhat of a handkerchief aficionado. To me they are gentle reminders of the classic by-gone era of demure fashions, gentle courtesy, & dainty accessories. So, I now create keepsake original gifts using retro & vintage handkerchiefs including my handmade Miniature Dresses, Men’s Miniature Shirts, & unique Fashionista Greeting Cards. It's my outlet for nostalgic fashions found only in the styles of yesteryear when hankies were part of a ladies everyday attire.
My store on Etsy is Hanky Haven & features mostly vintage handkerchiefs in fashionable forms. Hanky Haven is where dear old hankies go for their final reward. For additional info please visit my site at: https://www.etsy.com/shop/HankyHaven
