Pastel A-line dress

Okay, this is the sister dress from the last posting. I had said I got these dresses from the swap meet. I love the pastels in this original vintage a-line dress. It is in PERFECT condition as well!

Red a-line dress

Oh I felt like I was in baby dress heaven when I stumbled upon this. I am typically one of those swap meet shoppers that goes home empty handed... not this time! This is an original vintage a-line dress, not one of those you find on etsy with new fabric. It is in PERFECT condition. The fabric, ric-rack, and all the way to the buttons, I can not believe I own this. If you love this, wait until you see tomorrows dress!

I'm a Sailor mommy

Here on my nephew,back when he was at least 8 months old, is a sailor jumper. We had a grand ol' time trying to get these snap shots. Boy did he move quick! I had picked this up at a swap meet or thrift shop some time ago. It fits a 8-12 month old. I am pretty sure it is from the 50's at least, if not the 40s. The material is pretty thick and seems as if it could last for more than a lifetime. Actually I really don't know the year, but I know it is vintage! The tag reads "Florence Eiseman". That was the closest name I could make of it. It also says "Custom made" on the same tag.

I had to undo the red tie, unzip the front, and try to squeeze him into this with out ripping it. oh and you know that white little cloth inside on the top? It buttons twice! I managed to keep one button on but them I had to rebutton it, rezip and be tie that red piece. Boy was that a chore! It was all worth it for these photos. I am pretty sure his mommy appreciates our hard work.

*if anyone knows more history on this let me know. I did some research on Florence, but could not find out if there were custom sailor suits. Although I do know there are children clothing collections. That is a good sign!

Custom EVERSO Crib Quilt and Pillow

I am so thrilled to have had the chance to have a quilt made by the lovely Rach. It is a 33X50 inch crib quilt made from new & vintage materials (machine quilted). This includes bits of vintage embroidery, high-loft batting, handmade binding & vintage rick rack (hand-stitched around the binding). The quilt and pillow are backed in pink & white ticking-striped flannel.
The matching tiny 8X8.5 inch baby pillow consists of a new muslin pillow & quilted pillowcase with the same backing as the blanket, as mentioned earlier. This is one-of-a-kind... but HELLO so is everything else she makes.

Let's just say my kiddo will stand apart from the rest of the kids well as laying in his/her nest.

Pink & Aqua Skirt

Here you see a pink & aqua flannel skirt & sheer apron set, made from a Vintage housecoat & apron. This reminds me of one of the outfits you'd see in the 60's hallmark greeting books with the lil' girls wearing the most adorable apron skirts. You always wonder where you can buy something that awesome and I know where. Today my friends, I told you my secret. Hope you buy from her. I will be posting all of my Everso Clothing for awhile...I have tons!

Baby Calico Sweetie

This dress, in photos, will never live up to its amazing factor. I live for the day to see my non- existent daughter toddle or in tiny baby-case, I twirl her in the air in this sweetie. If you can imagine, a cute baby wrap-around halter apron dress with linen underskirt, then it helps to know what this actually is. Pictures are very hard to take of this beauty.

The top is a reworked vintage 40's/50's calico patchwork print apron & the skirt is recycled from vintage linen napkins.

Should fit sweet little baby girls from about 3 months to 12 months. Dress fits 17-22 inches around the chest (adjustable by ties at the neck & back) & is 13 inches in full length from the top of the shoulders. Skirt features an elastic waist that fits 16-20 inches & is 8 inches in length.

Ah, they keep getting sweeter and sweeter daily. Come back for tomorrows posty.

lOve, kim*

1930's Flour sack apron dresses

These sweet hearts are sisters. I could not just buy one and not adopt the other. They are so similar because of the fabric, yet so completely unique from each other! Every time I take them out I want to hug them to pieces. The smaller one fits 6-12 months & features an attached apron, elastic top, & sweet little collar on the straps. The larger dress fits 12-24 months & features adorable flutter sleeves, gathered neckline & a simple attached apron. They are so precious and tiny. They are made from recycled from vintage 1930's flour sack aprons.

My first upcycled dress

I had bought this a year or so ago and still claim it as my ultimate favorite. It has an apron skirt attached and ties in the back. It opens up , as you can slightly see that it is not attached at the bottom. The fabric is very bright still and has so much character for being vintage. There is so much detail and style to this dress, it amazes me.

I will post another item tomorrow, so drop back in.
