This first Hanky Dress was made from a lovely green linen hanky with a hand crocheted edging. The button at the waist is actually a four-leaf clover with a rhinestone center.

This second dress is the perfect contrasting companion to the first dress. It is made from a white linen hanky with a lovely green and white crocheted edge. The sweet little green buttons are a classic vintage style.

This vintage hanky was a rare find and I just love the Celtic look this Hanky Dress has. I think it could also be interpreted as Art Deco.

This Hanky Dress is simple yet very special. The design is created with white French knots worked on a green linen hanky. The button is a lovely carved mother of pearl.

This Hanky Dress is a bright kelly green cotton with a white floral design which is machine overstitched. The buttons are small vintage imitation pearl; and, I added some tiny vintage rick rack at the waist.

One of my oldest and personal favorites is this sweet little Hanky Dress. It is smaller than the others at only nine inches. The apron was created from a damaged Irish linen hanky. What makes it so special are the four-leaf clovers incorporated into the design of the lace.
