"Classic" for a reason
It is true, some things are timeless. Like Blue Plate mayonnaise, banana pudding warm from the oven, Mother Goose, patent leather Mary Janes, Peter Pan collars and lemonade made with real lemons and sugar. There is a reason they are called timeless and classic. Because they stand the test of time. This little dress is by Imperial of Portugal. It was baby mommy's first Easter dress. Here it is after having soaked in Biz for several days and a fresh pressing.
It is ready for baby's closet. You would never know it is 28 years old. Sadly like Creative Needle magazine, Imperial of Portugal is no longer in business. :sigh:
Pink tucks and lace never go out of style. This dress, baby mommy wore home from the hospital. I hadn't taken up heirloom sewing until this particular child was about 2. I obviously was drawn to it. I bought this classic Cherubs dress for our miracle baby to come home in.
Biz is amazing stuff. This had a few baby spit shadows on it. A few days in Biz and fresh as can be.
It has been heartwarming to go through the box of baby things to get them ready for this new generation. All of the 30+ year old Feltman Brothers are in the dryer as we speak.
(psst, be watching for a post with baby's coming home ensemble. In a few days, I promise.)
