Vintage cuteness

A year or two ago, a friend of my mom's found these funny fabric panels at a thrift store. (Please forgive my photography - it's a white background with red, blue and black print.) Judging from the print, I think they are from the 60's or 70's. I knew right away that I wanted to make something for Lydia from them, and I'm just now getting around to it.

So, I made a top, with the panels and lots of other fabrics in red and blue. The panels say "Sugar and Spice and Everything..." and that's all, so I embroidered "nice" on a scrap of white fabric and stitched it on, and frayed the edges. Then I made some blue knit capri pants to go with it.

Some outfits sort of like this will hopefully show up in my Etsy shop in a few days, if you know anyone who would be interested. Might be cute for the 4th of July.

Oh, Kim, what a precious little outfit! I love it! (I'm sure the lovely little model has something to do with it!)
