HAPPY PINK SATURDAY! In the 60's, I was in elementary school, the 5th grade, when pink and gray became very popular! I loved that combination and drooled over my friend's pink and grey wool plaid skirt with the pink sweater!! So I love that that combo is back again!...and I find I like the mustard yellow with grey as well. This is one side of my new reversible pinafore set. I love this old hand knitted lace and 60's trim. The gray cotton sateen is upcycled men's shirting fabric!
Here is the other side. I can't decide if I think it is rosebuds or cherries. It is from a piece of vintage 80's fabric I found. It was so fun sewing the lace onto the fabric and creating the little ruffle pants! I had just enough of the little pink lace to go around the legs, too!
I make this hat based on an internet free pattern I found. Love the way the petals curl up. I think this would be adorable with this outfit!
Not sure what to do with these beautiful embroideries YET. They are a wee bit fragile; I am wondering about pillows?
...and finally, do kids wear polyester any more? I was given this cool, very 60s poly fabric. So what do you think?
