Baby Lola arrived last week. A fall baby. I decided to make her one of my "vintage bonnets". This sweet little denim hat is trimmed with vintage lace, embroidery, whatever I have on hand. It is available in sizes 6, 12 & 18 mos. Lola recieved a 12 mos. It will fit her right around the time of her first birthday. Welcome to the world little Lola!
I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother. My journey into the enchanting world of classic children's clothing began when my first child, a son, was born in 1982. We welcomed a daughter and another son in the following 6 years. They were my inspiration learn English Smocking and to utilize the embroidery my grandmother had taught me when I was 6 years old. Through the years I have taught countless women Embroidery and English Smocking techniques. In addition I design and create custom garments which I sell to individual clients and in my Etsy shop. I am deeply inspired by old world techniques and materials. My main source of inspiration is the children who wear my designs.
