Wee Vintage Wednesday 10/5/2011

Good morning everyone 🙂  Time for one of my favorite times of the week, posting my kids wearing vintage stuff and seeing everyone else in their garb 😉  This week features my sweet Violet girl.  I very rarely find anything in the vintage dept. in her size that is not totally fugly (that’s freaking ugly, people).  It’s usually a pretty rare treat to find something cute, so when I saw this tunic/dress I snatched it right up.

She was so excited when she saw it and wants to wear it all the time.  Success! 🙂

We paired it with a pair of black leggings, knee high boots (not pictured) and a handmade headband from some fun houndstooth fabric.

So cute!  I love black, red and white together, don’t you?  Linking to Little Vintage Style and Small Style.

Outfit details:

Dress/tunic- vintage and thrifted

Leggings – Walmart

Boots -thrifted

Headband – handmade

p.s. the response yesterday to the pattern tester post was so overwhelming! 🙂 Thank you for all the encouragement and kind words.  I have asked the first 5 people to test for me, but don’t worry, I plan on holding a giveaway of the pattern on the blog once it is all final and finished.  Stay tuned!  I plan on emailing everyone who emailed me, it may take me a few days.  Have a wonderful wednesday!

      I was born and raised in Alpine, Utah 🙂 I moved from there about 8 years ago. Thanks, I hope to get the pattern all done soon 🙂
