Now this is HOT! Great outfit! And it is so completley vintage, as there are no (scratchy) sailorsuits out there anymore... Good job!

This is just wonderful! Oh, how I would love to make it for my 2 yr old DGD but not sure that mummy would appreciate it! It saddens me that she is always in jeans and trousers!! Thank you for sharing this! Mary Anne

So cute! It saddens me that your own DGD grew too fast for this one... but you'll make a mint on it! :)

Just perfect. Not many things make me want to have another child, but this would be close. Maybe I could make one for when my daughter, now 14, has her own daughter. Just went to your website, it is beyond words. I particularly love your Plush Snow Leopard Faux Fur Coat, Hat and Leggings. That would look incredible on any little girl, instant diva. Kudos to you.

Absolutely gorgeous! And I'd like a copy of the pattern, too. I've been searching for a good pattern for this type of outfit and haven't found any I like so well as this. :) Make two tops, the skirt, and a little pair of white shorts with cuffs, and you have matching outfits for fraternal twins! (And I've found a pattern for a pair of little boy's shorts with suspenders from the same era! If I lengthen them a bit and make cuffs on the bottom...) Is the offer to trace the pattern still open? I'd love to make one for my niece and one for my nephew!
