Some of you may recall the giveaway I won a couple years ago from Lucy of Quilting with the Past II. My prize was this charming primitive doll named Little Faithy.
Well, Faithy arrived at my home rather immodestly dressed, without any undies! Fortunately I had just the solution ~ a pair of hand crocheted bloomers which fit her perfectly.
Does anyone know what these fancy pants were originally intended for? I doubt they were made as doll clothes since there is a crocheted loop at the waistline for hanging. The bloomers are far too small to be used as a hot pad, as so many crocheted oddities were in the 1940’s and 50’s. I thought perhaps they were meant to cover a small sachet pillow for one’s lingerie drawer .
