Today I had to run errands at Walmart and I had some extra time, so I thought I'd have Andy's picture taken in this vintage romper. I even have a few pairs of old baby shoes, so I put those on, too. I wanted to put a little Kewpie curl above his forehead, but I didn't have any hair gel, so when I got to Walmart, I went to the hair products section and I found something that really worked!! It's called "Monkey Brains Psycho Sticky Hair Glue: Extreme Hold" and it's for "gravity defying styles." Well, they aren't lying. A drop of that stuff kept that curl cemented in...and it's still there!!
This romper is so sweet. It has a blue collar and cuffs. There is a Madeira appliqued swan and a little shaped pocket. The collar, cuffs, and sleeves are edged with hand-worked scallops. In fact, everything on this romper is stitched by hand. It has no tag, so I don't know if it was homemade or purchased. It looked so sweet on him, even if everyone thought he was a girl! Continue down for detail pictures and one of Andy wearing the romper. Back soon with more. I'm planning to share some American Girl clothes and antique patterns. Thank you to the friends I met this week through email. I'm sorry it took me awhile to answer you, but I was thrilled to hear from you!! Linking this post to White Wednesday at Faded Charm.
