"Natalie" by Children's Corner

Playing with Hankies!





View A Natalie was made using yellow seersucker check and white pique contrasting fabric.

We used  2 Madeira handkerchiefs for the pockets, back flaps & bows on the shoulder.

White whipped piping was used at the neck, waist, top of pockets, arms eye & the back flaps.

White daisy buttons with yellow centers finish the back of the dress.

Here are 2 other colors the handkerchiefs come in. They are slightly different but each has a main design corner for the pockets and 3 other corner designs for the back flaps and bows.

Blue/or Pink



Here is a closer view of the pockets and the back of the dress. This pattern comes in sizes 1 thru 12, 2 sizes per pattern.

   The bows on the shoulders were made from the 2 small unused corners of both handkerchiefs. I  hand basted the two corners together and wrapped another spare piece around the center to make the bows
