Retro Preschooler

Seriously people, this was at Goodwill for $5.99 today.  All three pieces.

There are not tags in it, so it's handmade vintage.  It's definitely from the day when people at home really knew how to sew.  Goodwill had it tagged size 3t, but I think it's more of a 2t.   The snow pants are too short for Tillie, but would probably look okay with boots.  (Oh, how I wished the boots I had ordered were here already!)

The other amazing part is that Tillie loves it too.  In this picture she wanted you to see the zippers on the back of the pants leg.  See, room for putting on boots.

All I want to do today is take her to downtown Holland for some pictures.

Wool snow pants people.  Wool.  With elastic stir-ups to keep them pulled down.  And a matching bonnet.  This is what makes the weeks of flipping through stained Circo and Faded Glory clothes worth while.

That's a really cute outfit. I love the hat, especially. That's totally what makes the thrift store worth it--when you strike gold for $6.
