Little Girl Vintage

Yesterday the mail came, and in it was this gorgeous little skirt all the way from Australia, courtesy of this great blogger. I needed a top to wear it with. After Little V went to bed, I tried my hand at blouse #1 from this 1950s sewing pattern.

I used a $1.00 fabric remnant from Ikea. It's a nubbly, thick cotton. (I'll iron it, I swear).

Dig the vintage collar.

A row of random retro buttons.

And a little inverted pleat at each sleeve.

The perfect outfit for a game of ring-around-the-rosey on Mommy's lamp.

Thanks for the skirt MaeKellan!
