Retro chic- Dish cloth dresses

When my friend told me she was selling a pattern for dish cloth dresses, I had no idea what she was talking about.
 Recently she showed me a copy of her new book for Leisure Arts- aptly titled "Dishcloth Dresses." For the uninitiated, they are indeed dresses, and they adorn a bottle of dish detergent.  Unlike the ubiquitous toilet paper dolls of the 60's and 70's, dishcloth dresses are actually functional.  They are perfect dishcloths, perched right where they are most useful.

 I love the idea of something so eco friendly, and tongue in cheek.
For a look at more of her patterns, here is a link to her website.
Congratulations Debbie!


  1. These are so clever. I love them. I'm passing this along to my knitting addict friends. There are legions of us out here.
    Have a great day.

    1. Oh, thank you! I love to hear that there are more of us out there!

  2. How fun is that KnitYarns. When I first saw your post (bleary-eyed) I thought they were actual dresses made from tea towels. Crochet dish cloths are popular with some of my crafty family so passing this one along also. Have a fine week!
