Vintage Inspiration

I love old things!
Much of my inspiration comes from vintage magazines and illustrations.

The  dress shown above is on a little girl. 
 I look at that picture and I think how cute "Baby's Smocked Layette" would look in white Dimity, Skip Dent or Lawn, smocked in Red and trimmed in Red at the neck and sleeves. 

 And that would be a Happy Valentines Day dress!

I agree... thanks for the inspiration to begin a valentine dress for "the grand"

And those socks and Mary Jane's really make that little girl's outfit. I love that look! I miss those days.

So cute! I love seeing little girls in clothes that are appropriate for their ages. I don't like dressing them like mini adults. So sweet!
I hope to get started on more baby sewing soon. Our 'baby' has just found that she is expecting grandbaby #2 in August. Our now 3 & 1/2 year old grandgirl had a whole tote filled with smocked and hand sewn clothes before she was born. Let the sewing begin!!
