Vintage Thingies Thursday: Lil' Dress

This pink baby dress hangs on the wall in my daughter's nursery. It was passed down to my mother from her sister. My two cousins took turns wearing this sweet little dress first, so it dates back to, at least, 1966. Here's a close up of the detail:





Next, I wore the dress in 1973.







Then my daughter wore it on mother's day in 2007.





It remains in excellent condition - hopefully, to be passed down again and again.

Thanks to The Apron Queen for hosting Vintage Thingies Thursday each week. Please visit her blog for more great vtt!

That is so sweet! I love little girl's vintage dresses. I dress my daughter up in little vintage dresses sometimes when we are running errands, and little old ladies will stop and tell me that it is so refreshing to see my little girl dressed up. They talk about how people just don't do that anymore.
