Having been a 'vintage gal' long enough to now actually be vintage, and having babies for the past 13 years, I have acquired many vintage baby clothes. The problem with this is I don't like putting my babies in them. I try very hard not to dress the girls based on my vanity. Simply my requirements for their clothing are comfort and girlie. With my first daughter 13 years ago I was basically limited to Hannah Anderson. But now simple comfortable, even organic cotton, baby clothes can be found as easily as a trip to Target.
Dotty's basic staple is a sleep and play. I love them, no snaps no tags, no zippers! They have also provided a way I can sneak a little vintage into her wardrobe without sacrificing comfort. As pictured you see a simple pinafore worn over a sleep and play. Reminds me of jr. high and wearing thermals under all my skirts. I paired this with a beautiful crocheted set made by her great grandmother. Perfect!
