Every once in a while I come across a non-knitting book that begs for my attention. I saw Hankie Couture in the library and thought my daughter would enjoy it. I then proceeded to read it myself, cover to cover.
These doll dresses, made from vintage handkerchiefs, are simply amazing. They are presented in a gallery with quotes about Hankie Couture philosophy and aesthetics. Each dress is also detailed at the back of the book.
The book was a fun diversion for me, and inspiring for my daughter (who went on to make doll costumes for extra credit in her History class).
