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!

Yes, the livejournal is dead!

I adore Hawaii. When I live there I will be traveling a lot for work, so every time I go home it will feel like vacation.

Saw you in the etsy thread.
What an adorable dress and a great find!!
This is just the sort of thing I would have loved to dress my daughter in when she was younger.

looking forward to tomorrow's dress! hahaha... you are good at finding great outfits, esp that sailor's outfit?? i think i had a matching dress when i was around your nephew's age. i wonder if it's the same maker? (no longer have that dress though!)

That is cute, and I do love it! I love all little girl dresses (especially vintage) and since I only have my son, I guess I'll just have to dress dolls, or hope for a granddaughter some day!!

These vintage baby dresses are what inspired me to get back to sewing! Love it. It's gorgeous! I remember making my very first dress from a vintage pattern when I was in 2nd grade. I gave it to my cabbage patch doll...
Can't wait to see tomorrow's dress!

It's wonderful! love the pattern and the color. It looks like something you could frame and use as wall decor in a nursery.

THANK YOU everyone for keeping up with my crazy daily posts. I will get to your freshly updated posts by tonight.

Angel Droppings, I am glad you got inspired by dresses like these

tattytiara -ha ha exactly

Nodin's Nest -that's a great idea, but after i use them on my child, i will most likely start up an online shop, non etsy though.

Yes! That is to cute! That's why I love making Real pillowcase dresses! That's have the fun. I'm not a big fan of the pillowcase "style" dresses with the new fabric either! I like finding vintage and retro pillowcases, then turning them into fabulous little dresses! Here's to the REAL thing!
Cheers~Stevie
