Happy Pink Saturday!!
My post for today is a sweet vintage baby dress - how many of you remember these. I love them and dressed my daughter in them as often as possible - and they were vintage back then - so now they're really vintage. Many of them were totally handmade including the tucking and always out of the most soft cotton lawn and voile. You don't see many anymore, but I happened to find this in a thrift or antique store sometime back. Anytime I find something like this I have to buy it - I just hate to see such workmanship and love tossed aside. I made many of my children's clothes growing up, so I have an idea of how much work went into these little dresses. I know I have others but I'm sure they're packed away with many other items of my children's childhood. The pink flower is hand embroidered, you can still see the blue ink from the pattern underneath, and for some reason the dress was never completed. This one is machine sewn not hand sewn but still has the appeal of gentler times gone by. And, I had to add those little pink Easter chicks again also.
Have a wonderful Pink Saturday everyone, I will get to as many of you as possible. I love visiting and having visitors. Take care.
