Another Americana Red Cross PUG Dawg!

Like I said earlier, I wanted to make one more of these fabulous Americana Pug dawgs using that wonderful vintage childs shirt and vintage american flag textiles. I used the last of the original red trimmed textiles from the shirt and this is what I came up with for a sooooo reminded me of an old nurse outfit so I gave her an original Red Cross pinkback from 1921! LOVE HER!
She of course, is made in honor of America's upcoming Independence Day!
Happy 4th of July America!!

This second dress that I made here I used part of a vintage childs top and a vintage american flag. I used the (2) red trimmed sleeve cuffs for her collar and a section of original buttons for the front as well as the back. A piece of the old blue faded fabric from the shirt to make my dress bodice. I used more red& white stripes from th vintage American Flag for the ruffle bottom of the dress and the blue & white stars part for a big bow on her head! I just love the colors on this piece and as with the first one I made, this outfit looks as if it could be totally original from 1921 ;)
She is for sale right now on ebay in case you want to see more pics & descriptions.
