I was so honored to be able to make this Heirloom Hanky Dress for Katie Dix. She is a talented lecturer and fellow collector of vintage hankies.
This wonderful plaid hanky and rhinestone buttons belonged to Katie's mother, Mary Cleeton (b. 1920 in Vinita OK; d. 1998 in Nashville TN). She served in the US Navy during World War II, married in Califonia in 1947, raised her family in Nashville, and spent her working career as a creative writer for Jack Daniels Distillery.
