The vintage child

There's something about vintage children's clothing that makes my heart ache. The fine details, the careful stitching, the simplicity. Classic garments like these make me wish I could outfit my own children in wardrobes from the 1930s.

  1. Love it Mae! Nice to see you. :)

  2. Ditto. I have to restrain myself from purchasing children's clothing at antique stores (I don't have kids yet!) -- I love it all so much.
