For the past couple weeks my daughter's kindergarten class has been learning about "old timey" things. We got a note earlier this week saying that Friday would be Old Fashioned Day and the kids could dress in old fashioned clothing.
Of course Harper's closet is full of skinny jeans and glitter and nothing she owns even relatively resembles something old fashioned. Even though this was an optional activity, I thought it would be fun if we picked out some fabrics and made her something to wear. Good thing that old fashioned clothes are pretty simple to make because I was totally winging it. The entire project took about 90 minutes and I am not a quick sewer, especially when it comes to clothes, so this was really easy (I did not make the shirt).
Can you tell she was super excited to have her picture taken?
We made her apron out of Kona bone and her bonnet is an older print from a line called Hunky Dory that is actually leftover from the very first quilt I ever made.
