Vintage Final Day

Little pink felt baby shoes, probably from the 1940's or 1950's.
I love this little cotton dress, see the details of the print below.
I would guess the dress is from the 1940's or 1950's after looking at the print.
I remember when I was little how popular rick-rack was on little dresses.
For the final Vintage series day I have a give away.
It is a dear pattern of baby clothes I once made for my babies and a pair of sweet knitted booties. Now if you don't sew or don't want to use the pattern to make baby clothes Dawn at The Feathered Nest had a great idea for old patterns. She suggested using the patterns in place of tissue paper in gifts. What a great idea and wouldn't be so fun to receive a gift wrapped in an old pattern.

Just leave a comment on this Vintage Final Day entry before Saturday, January 31st, to enter for the give away. Please leave your email address; so I can contact you for your address.

Your vintage items take me back to the baby clothes I used to look at in a special box that my mom kept in her closet. They were those of my sis and me. She made many of them --- and was good at knit and crochet.

I would love to be entered in your drawing. Thank you!
