I’ve got a little bit of a vintage thing going on right now, which is why I have been fondling floral fabrics every chance I get. (How’d you like that little bit of alliteration there?)

I couldn’t help myself when I came across these two fabrics. I think it took me about three seconds to figure out what I was going to make with them — and I’m quite pleased with the results.

Usually, I shirr the neckline and sleeves of my peasant tops but this time I opted to go with elastic. I’m so glad I did! I really love the look; it’s a little softer than shirring, in my opinion, and really kind of lends itself to the vintage-y feeling I was going for.

The pants are my favorite part, though. I actually found that fabric — a lightweight embroidered cotton — first and immediately bought every last inch. Yes, I can be a little obsessive sometimes! It’s very light and will be perfect for wearing throughout the spring and into the summer here.

Miss L had lots of fun modeling today, especially since I put on her ballet shoes to wear with the set. Lots of “tippy toes” and showing Mommy her ballet poses. (The faces were an added bonus — and challenged me not to laugh!)

    LOVE the pants. Did you use a pattern?

    The whole outfit is so cute. I love the vintagy stuff as well. The flowery prints are so cute, but I can’t convince my husband….

    Nanny is teaching Madison to sew a little. She got a small sewing machine from Mrs. Sheila for Christmas. We were looking for free patterns for pillows and we decided to look at your site. We love the outfit Miss L. is wearing today.

    Oh…how precious! I don’t know when I don’t have a thing for vintage…I keep it all stacked up in my house and fondle it quite regularly…I think I am scared to cut into it…sigh.
