I was reminded yesterday by the lovely Emily of The Beetle Shack of the classic collection of children's clothes I designed and made in 2009. I loved everything about this spring collection, a twist on the nautical theme. I love to use a strong palette of red, navy and whites, crisp and big on style for the little fashionista's. This photo shoot was one happy, fun filled day , the children were so eager to be photographed and really got into the spirit of the party. Lots of party food kept the models all happy and zinging about. I always keep a still from the shoot on my inspiration board.
The frilly bloomers below are my 'Knickernoos' collection are all made from vintage fabrics. Each pair is different and unique. I still have a box full of these gorgeous things and will get them into my online store soon.
I wanted to add a touch of nostalgia from my days of birthday afternoon tea parties, and this is what I came up with, the 'oouu girls'. There are always these kinda gals at parties with pucker lips, butter wouldn't melt, kinda girls that don't stuff their faces with cake and turn upside down and let their pants show. (I did all of those things)
