Sweet Stripes


Mmmm... This is the striped seersucker set I mentioned before. So soft and cuddly and just a bit reminiscent of Jessie Wilcox Smith nursery book illustrations. I did shorten the grosgrain ties, even though I loved them long. The cap was initially deemed 'a little bonnet-ish' (read 'girly') by the Professor, but was upgraded to classic once the ties were cut to a sporty length. This worked out best all around, as immediately after snapping this photo, Little Bear found the ties and undid them, eventually taking the cap off in the process.

I did have the presence of mind to fuss over the thread spool and bobbin colors, resulting in a reversible cap. It is lined in the green linen of the previous pair of pants, and thus does double duty. A white linen shirt in a different style will be next, just need to get the fabric laundered.

Also:
~ If you are needing a little girl dress fix, do visit Clare. Her white vintage baby dress trimmed in an abundance of red rick-rack is adorable and inspiring.

I love the bonnet! I'm a sucker for cute bonnets though :) I just haven't gotten around to making any yet. One of these days....
