Primitive Vintage Doll Dress Ornies





A couple of weeks ago I made a little primitive doll dress on a hanger, which I made using cardboard and fabric. I thought I'd should just make one with just the fabric like a real doll dress. So this is what I came with. They sure were fun to make and decorate. I used reproduction civil war fabric along with different vintage trim that I inherited. I've had this big box of old trim that I've been dieing to use. And I made my own little hangers out of rusty wire! I think these would look perfect hanging from a cupboard or to decorate up your laundry room. They measure 7" tall by 5" wide without the hanger. Add another 2 inches with the hanger. I have one of mine hanging from a rusty nail on my refinished wooden shelf that I have in the kitchen. I will be listing these in my etsy shop starting tonight.

We had a cool cloudy rainy day today. But much warmer and sunny weather is on tap for this weekend! We are expecting 80's and maybe 90's. Yikes talk about a huge jump into summer. It only got up into the 60's today. You won't hear me complaining. I like the warm weather, better then freezing do death. :)

Well that's all for now. Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!!

The dresses are wonderful. I have a pattern book with different style clothing, tempted to try a few myself, to hang on my peg racks.

Those are darling and oh so prim. You have inspired me to get out a pattern I bought a few months ago and DO something with it. It's from McCall's and has little dresses to use as ornies. Love your things.
