Easter Togs

These are some of my favorite vintage kid’s clothes finds. I keep them hanging up in my craft room for inspiration. It just dawned on me that they’re all perfect Easter outfits!

The bunny and carrot smocking on this top is awesome! Wish it came with the bottoms those buttons are for.

This is my favorite little baby cardigan. Little lamb intarsia done in super fuzzy soft angora (?) or something. The lamb designs are so dense at first I thought this was a little wool sweater that had been accidentally washed and shrunk up. But I don’t think that’s the case. It must be a larger guage yarn knit on tiny needles? It is still a mystery to me. I’ve tried a few times to recreate the effect and it’s never come out quite right. Maybe because I stink at intarsia/fair isle knitting!

    The smocked top is so so sweet. I often want to give smocking a go, but alas, I think my little guys would feel just the way Oscar does about the cherry dress.

    I *love* that smocked top! How cute! Vintage baby clothes are the best – I love the way we used to dress kids like little adults, rather than making clothes specifically styled for little ones…

    Poor little Oscar! But it’s such a cute little dress! My great uncle, being the last of 3 boys was kept in dresses as long as he could bear it. I’m sure my great-grandmother must have cried when his curls were cut off. Those were the days you could get away with that sort of thing. On the other hand, my nephews seemed to be ok with smocking as long as the design had things like trains and cars. The yellow shirt with the carrots doesn’t look too girly……

    Oscar doesn’t look impressed with the dress does he, he must know that he shouldn’t be wearing it. It does look gorgeous though and I love the smocking on the bunny top. Beautiful work..

    O! Oscar’s expression is just priceless. “Ewwww! Git it off me! Git it off me!” holding it off so it won’t sear his boy skin with all its pink girlyness.

    Dang, I totally wish I had swag like that…in my size. When the little man was littler I scored a few cool vintage pieces for him too, but he was too chubby to wear them for very long 🙂

    Oh, seeing those sweet outfits reminds me of my mom’s and my great yard sale finds. I cannot wait for spring to finally arrive so we can go out looking for sweet vintage clothes and fabrics again!
