Meet Hortense.  She measures 23" tall to the tip of her festive polka-dotted party hat. Her striped dress is embellished with green pom-pom trim and a vintage button. I sewed an aged covered button backed with a vintage millinery flower and seam binding ribbon to Hortense's bodice. The button reads:
Happy Spring! 
Underneath, she sports muslin pantaloons that are trimmed with green rick-rack.  
Hortense will arrive at your home~sweet~home with a basket and a green paper maché egg. The egg has been painted and aged for timeworn appeal. I tied a bow around the basket's handle with different shades of vintage seam binding ribbon.
