I picked up this 1977 Raggedy Ann pattern at a local thrift store! and I was so so excited since It looks perfect for fall with the long sleeve jumper dress and school girl apron over top that I had to buy it and make it! (confession - I actually bought this pattern years before I had my daughter because I loved it that much and "if I ever get a girl" I knew I wanted to make it!)
Here is the outfit! Made out od corduroy (also thrifted - $2.00!). I love the look and feel of corduroy in the fall time and I LOVED the color of it, a nice deep red looks perfect against the fall leaves (in my opinion). For an added bit of fun I also did a little embroidery on the apron, and am very pleased with it! A perfect fall mushroom and birds just completes the outfit without drawing all the attention to itself.
The apron has 4 pocket spaces along the front. In the next two pictures you can see the embroidery much easier.
It is my first embroidery attempt - so it's not perfect, but I still love it.
As you can see it's still a touch to big on my girl, so I think it'll be a thanksgiving outfit.
And that is my fall outfit for my girl! Total cost $3.25 ($2 for the corduroy, $1 for the off white natural fabric, and $.25 for the pattern)
What do you think? Have you found any great thrift finds that are vintage but still cute?
