Vintage Sweetness

I love vintage dresses for little girls and am amassing quite a collection so it’s a good thing the weather has finally warmed up and I can start laying them out for Shine to wear.

Here’s a few of my favourites.

LOVE the seersucker. More seersucker needed in girl’s clothing today I say.

I can not go past a scalloped edge. This was £1.50 in my local charity shop and looked like it had never been worn. I had to rescue it so it could have its day on my girl. I adore the little embroidered details.

This one I know more of it’s history as it was mine when I was a little girl. My grandma made it for me. The cotton is so fine that I wince when Shine runs in it in case she slips and falls onto it as it will surely rip. It would be a shame to wrap it in tissue paper for the future when there’s a little girl who can dance and skip in it today.

Do you have a thing for vintage kid’s clothes? Tell me your secret stores so I can continue to build Shine’s collection.

  1. They are lovely. You are very visual – love the combination of the clothes against the blue sky. So that is ‘seersucker’? I learn something every day. I picked up a wonderful sweater for my little horror when she was little in a charity shop – Little Boo Peep on one side and all the sheep on the other, she loved it.

    • Such a shame they don’t sell, often vintage clothes last so much longer than modern clothes for kids, and washes better. I dare not go on eBay these days lest I buy up every gorgeous thing I see!

  2. Love them! I too have a thing for vintage dresses and seersucker and scallops. I’m a little annoyed that my daughter has her own taste in clothing now. 😉 That will happen before you know it so pile on the vintage sweetness while you can!

    • I plan on avoiding letting her choose her clothes as long as possible. She already has a strong view on what to wear of her clothes but lucky she has no say in what’s in her wardrobe yet 🙂
