I made these little clothes for a friends little girl. I thought they turned out quite sweet. They are all from a vintage doll pattern from the 1950's that belonged to my mother. She made all the doll clothes for my sisters and my dolls.
One year when I was back home visiting Mum, I went through all her patterns that have been stashed away in the basement. I categorized them into lovely containers and then when all was said and done, unbeknown to Mum, I popped a few in my luggage to come back with me to Australia. Mum isn't all that keen on things leaving home (her children or her/their things!) I can understand that. Still, I wanted those patterns. She hasn't looked at them in YEARS. I hope she'd be proud that I'm actually using them. I don't know if I will tell her though!
