WW: Vintage-y Goodness

Oh how I love me some vintage goodness....

But it has to be in some manner functional or useful...its just how I roll (like my gorgeous blue stand mixer, or the amazing bail and wire Ball jars I got from my friends)

So imagine my excitement when my mother in law showed me....and then gave me...these....






aren't they just yummy!!!







I have been on a little sewing hiatus this past week...but I am ready to fire the sewing machine up again.  and {after finishing the quilt I started about a year ago, and making my friend's pillows} I think one of these dresses might be in order {oh and there is the tutu I want to make for my friend's daughter's birthday, and a scarf or two just for fun}

but maybe by spring I will have one of these made...


I think this one...{the green dress}



Now lets just hope I can sew these without the instructions...those appear to be long gone!!

  1. I have a few of those in my closet...the patterns, not the outfits. LOL! I even have one for baby doll dresses.
