Vintage Dresses

Eclectic Ellapu is having another great challenge this month and the theme of the challenge is is vintage/shabby chic. 

I have made these two little baby dress for a friend whose going to be a grandmother of twin girls.  I try to make the dresses similar but not the same.  I found some small flowered paper for the dresses  and I inked the edges and used a white gell pen to add some little details. 

I used vintage lace that I found at the local thrift store, old buttons, old seam binding and pearls to decorate the dress cards.
