what you get with old Country Curtains, cast off fabric, and old suit buttons

DRESSES~~ for four little girls...>I have four daughters, and little cash for dresses.....this is what I whipped up...the petticoats under the dresses is what makes the difference with these gowns..they wouldn't look near like they do if it weren't for the underclothing.....Old curtains are the petticoats....found the fabric from a lady closing down her craft room so it's TOP quality..but I didn't even pay a dollar for YARDS AND YARDS of it...
old buttons from a terribly out of date mens coat...are used to accent the hair pieces..
