I have upholstered my daughter.

Doesn't she look like a 1970's settee?

I'm glad I ultimately opted against the protective plastic though.  :D

Anyhow!  Here's another vintage sunsuit from the coleccion!

It was 90+ degrees out... She was in no mood for a photo shoot.

No.  Mood.

Here's the pattern!  It's from 1977 - fitting :)

I sewed View 1, sans pockets, and I went with grosgrain ribbon for the halter instead of self-fabric.  I wanted a really flowy, exaggerated bow in the back, as per usual, and I thought ribbon would work better for that.  Score.

Trying to pick which rock to eat...

That one, I guess.  :P

Weeds almost the height of baby = fail.



"Emmy, please don't off the puppy..." = ^^ this face.

Ready!..... Aim!.........

"Aw, c'mon you guys..."
