What is Hankie Couture ? A stunningly original collection of doll-sized fashions- everything from pajamas to wedding gowns- meticulously crafted from vintage handkerchiefs. Accented with slyly witty Hankie Couture girl "philosophy," this book is a stylish showcase of 125 unique fashions and accessories. It is also a how-to guide that allows you to transform treasured heirlooms or colourful flea-market finds into one-of-a-kind fashion ensembles. Whether it's a floral sundress that fans out as it twirls, an apron dress with a scalloped border, or a neatly pin-tucked linen dress with pearl buttons, the book encompasses a seemingly infinite variety of exquisite dresses. Neither crafters nor doll collectors have ever seen a book like this, making Hankie Couture a uniquely irresistible challenge to crafters. And with its beautiful design and kitschy lifestyle advice, this makes a great gift book.

About the Author

Marsha Greenberg began sewing her own fashions at the age of eleven. Her love of fabrics, colours, and patterns continued throughout the years. In the summer of 2002, after discovering a treasure trove of vintage handkerchiefs in a Pennsylvania antiques shop, Marsha made her first Hankie Couture dress- and hasn't stopped since. Her unique creations can be found on eBay and on her website. Marsha and her husband live in Encino, California.

Gorgeous photos of wonderful doll outfits made from hankies. I had hoped that there would be patterns and information about how to do this for yourself, but there was very few patterns - about five, and really the only advice give was to study your hankie and think hard about what it was to become. So not as helpful as I wanted, but still a gorgeous book.

This is an absolutely gorgeous book, aim buying a second copy for a gift Marsha is incredibly talented, and her creations from la kerchiefs and doilies are so beautiful. If you loved barbie as a girl you will love this book and wish you had kept your dolls from childhood.
