A few weeks ago, Little Man and I made a little trip up to Oklahoma to visit my grandmother. During our visit, Granny dug out some vintage fabric that she had put aside for me. I came home with some pretty sheets and pillowcases just begging to be repurposed for future projects. But my favorite find was about a yard of nubby fabric with a crazy print that, believe it or not, was left over from a sewing project that my mother did when she was a little girl.
The fabric was in great condition and washed beautifully, so I decided to use it to make some cute bloomer shorts for my little princess. Of course, I couldn’t stop there, so I whipped up a little top to go with it using this free tutorial from The Mother Huddle.
I used plain white cotton for the shirt and lining and added some sweet little details for even more vintage flair.
And here’s the finished product!
Isn’t she sweet?
The little outfit was perfect for sharing a joke with brother…
And playing with Daddy.
I think vintage is here to stay!
Until next time,
