vintage children’s fashion + mother’s day!

4 21 3

Looking through some old photos last night, I was totally inspired by all the colors and patterns my mom used to dress my sisters and me in, in the late '70's and early '80's.  She sewed almost everything I wore until I was 18. I still look at the photos and love all the clothes. Thanks, Mom + Happy Mother's Day!


I love the plaids and stripes and the green + yellow shoes!

P.S. The photos are all of my adorable sisters/m+d.


  1. These are so so cute-love that red dress. You were adorable!
    My mother also sewed a lot of our clothes, makes me a little sad that I do not know how to sew!

  2. Thanks, Nina. That’s my sister, Erika! I couldn’t find many pictures of me during this period. These are all taken before everyone got really bad hairdos.

  3. Awesome. Love the ‘old school’ tent. Hahaha. I remember how musty they used to smell after coming out of winter hibernation in the garage.
    Adorable outfits too. You’re mom is really good at color coordination.

  4. So lovely! The little dress/tops are the cutest! I wish I could sew. My mom used to hand-make all my halloween costumes, duvet covers, curtains, and knit us baby sweaters! Maybe that is not a lot, but for a daughter who can barely sew buttons, I am amazed by her and your mom too!

  5. I love these pictures…It is so fun to look back on old family pictures and see what has changed. Thanks for sharing these.
