'Knickernoos, delicious, gelato coloured bottoms'
In my studio
You might ask where the dickens I came up with a name like 'Knickernoos', I didn't, my gorgeous mother did along with lots of other peculiar names for personal belongings. (My primary school days were hell) My mother the gatherer of remnant fabrics and old curtains would run up a few pairs of these such bloomers a week and yes I wore them, I wore them under everything, at this early stage of my life I was a free wheeling toddler with no particular fashion agenda. She started out making the plain pant style bloomers but when she got the momentum going, she added frills, flounces, trims, you name it any haberdashery item that was left unstitched would end up on my pants.
With a trunk full of my mothers beautiful vintage fabric remnants I set out making my own, my three daughters wore them and I have made hundreds of pairs along the way for family and friends.
I have a beautiful and unique collection of these 'knickernoos' in my studio all made in delicious gelato colours. I still love and enjoy making these gorgeous bloomers and the fun part is matching the frills and flounces with the vintage fabrics.
To celebrate putting these beauties into my shop, I want to share my mother's love of vintage with you, she'd totally love this, I am so excited to make a gift of a pair of these vintage beauties to a lovely little bubalicious. All you have to do is tell me what your favourite gelato flavour is (Yum) and what size (00 - 2), then kindly post my vintage giveaway so your readers get a chance to join in the fun, follow my blog and liking my facebook page will also make me really happy (so I can feel the love). I have many gorgeous and unique vintage fabrics and colour ways and I'm sure you'll love what I choose!
Hmmm I'm off for a gelato!
