Altered antique baby dress



Antique dress with collage of old lace pieces, frays and an image of children, one hold a bear so I added a teddy bear charm.
Made a little necklace with old French text, it adds drama and a bit more to move the eye around I think.
Well anyway!
I dyed it the pale color, used herbal tea for that.

So beautiful Lilla.
I can imagine that hanging in an Edwardian nursery in an English country house.
