A few weeks ago, I was very excited to find a stash of beautiful vintage linens. It got my mind whirring with ideas and my hands itching to get sewing.
And what better piece to start sewing with than a lovely crinoline lady?
She’s paired with vintage hankies and fabric, plus a scrap from the hem of a raggedy 1940s nightdress, and is lined with vintage patchwork. The trim is from another piece of vintage linen, found in the same stash as the crinoline lady herself.
And you know what the best part is?
There were two crinoline ladies on that piece.
I’d better get sewing.
