Sassy teatowel lassies

A new couple of vintage style dresses for young girls.
The Pumpkin Pete dress is quite fab.. the back is a groovy coach & horses scene with sailing ships in the background..how about that pretty pink sky!! The front of the dress has the cutest little laddie sitting on a pumpkin reading a book (I've named him Pumpkin Pete)he is reading "tips for beginners" & has a little bird looking over his shoulder. Tell me what little girl wouldn't look adorable in this dress. back of Pumpkin Pete dress

The Still Life dress is such a gorgeous yellow on the front and the scene on the back is just so kitsch it has to be seen to be believed. Green sky...what the...? front Still Life dress

Yes, a new style of frock for sean-the-prawn using pristine never been used vintage teatowels.
I found them in a local op shop..looked like they had been stored away in some lovely old biddies linen press for a long time. I thought they were too good to chop into so I kept them whole for this gathered up neckline style. I'm thinking they would be a good size for a 5- 10 yr old. Either soon to be sold at Mooch Inside or my Etsy shop.

Ah, I think I know exactly where the stash was extracted from. 'Twas a good stash. They look very cute as wee little dresses.

Those are great! I wish I could have had such cute dresses when I was little.

I love the tea towel dresses so much! Such a clever idea to use the whole thing. I found a few recently but even after washing they are really stiff and would be uncomfortable to wear.
