McCall’s 6214…from 1961. Vintage! That little blue jacket at the top is darling. And those booties are tempting…they look sooo easy.
I see on the pattern that it originally (in 1961) cost 50 cents…I paid 25 cents at our church’s thrift shop. Love that place.
This weekend, I made a baby bonnet for Trisha’s new baby girl, due to arrive at the beginning of the summer. Because every baby girl needs a fresh, crisp white bonnet to shade round cheeks from the sun.
I made a change on the embellishments (my lace collection is sadly lacking), and instead affixed a very large fabric flower to the side. Because every baby girl needs absurdly big flowers. It turned out quite charming. I can’t wait to see it on their new baby girl. (I did try it on the only baby available…a boy…but out of consideration for said baby’s father, didn’t take a picture. But it was pretty darling.)
I’m tempted to make one for our baby…and if Baby is a boy, then it will either become a gift or a doll bonnet.
