Kids in "Little House" dress & pinafore sets
These are my oh-so-beautiful great-granddaughters. I made "Little House" dress and pinafore sets for them. The dresses were all gingham and both dresses and pinafores used some old traditional patterns from that time.
This year I will be working to complete dresses and bonnets for the two older girls to wear to the Oklahoma Land Run programs (see list of UFO's) and I am anxious to see how they are going to like them. I really enjoy using period patterns and often juxtapose the very traditional patterns with contemporary fabrics. That's what the girls are used to... My only concern is how them will like the more drab fabrics/colors that were available to them for daily wear dresses... I'll keep you posted on how they are coming along.
