A Pretty Little Thing

Vintage Child’s Dress

Originally uploaded by artgurl1

Sometimes when I am questing about on ebay for vintage fabric, I run across vintage clothing.
It’s easy for me to pass up the highly coveted christening gowns, and silken baby bonnets. But the little torn and tattered frocks, with no bidders, those I can’t pass by. They tell a story you see, one that I can almost hear. The whispering of gentle days gone by, the laughter of children playing croquet on the lawn, or the gentle splashing of floating boats across the pond, are a siren call I can’t resist.
As my needle and thread repair the little frock, I dream it will live again, and share wonderful new times with my own little girl.
