Little House...


My brother and I in 1973.


It started way back when my mom would make me clothes that looked like this yellow dress. Almost everything she made me had a pinafore and a bonnet. During this summer I have rediscovered my love for Little House on the Prairie. I have decided that I want the entire wardrobe of the Caroline Ingalls. Yes, I will have to shorten the skirts, and have some short sleeved shirts, but I love how simple her dress is. So, when I see the shirts I make with my favorite calico fabrics I am not going to worry is it too Little House. I am just going to admit completely inspired by Caroline Ingalls.

Update: The romper I made is no longer a romper. I had to make adjustments due to my refusal to follow a pattern. I will post it on Friday.

LOL - now I'm looking forward to seeing your no-more-a-romper even more! ;) I loved Little House on the Prairie too, when I was a child - I used to have all the books. Never saw the series, though.

I think everyone loved watching Little House growing up. Yesterday I was talking with my year old neighbor and she was reading one of the books.
Saga looks a lot like me. My husband calls her 2.0.
