Flash Back Friday #4

I just love this picture....It was taken in 1983 by one of those photography groups like pixie photos. I was 2, I think. The little dress that I have on, not that you can see much of it, was made by my mother. I love the fabric and the little lace around the sleeves is so gorgeous.

My little princess turns 1 at the start of next month and my mum has made her first party dress, peter pan color and all. She posted it yesterday so I should receive it on Monday. She decided to make her own patten and the fabric that she has chosen to use is a mixture of red and white. I can't wait to see what she's crafted up...


  1. Nice photo, love your little dress and thank goodness your hair got thicker. Does your daughter look like you??

  2. My mum said that it took forever for my hair to grow. Unfortunately my daughter is the same. She's nearly 1 and it doesn't look like I'll be putting her hair up in a pigtail for at least another year (sigh). Everybody tells me that they can see a bit of me in my little princess but I think she leans more towards her fathers jeans especially with her fair features.


  3. ohhh you look so adorable!!! and the little dress is beautiful...lucky you to have your mum make your little one something!!!!!

  4. I adore this pix too jode... I luv the earrings they make u look soooo grown up.... and such an angel face...
    luv Abby

  5. I love hearing about others with hand made clothes,your Mum did a great job!!
    I made all my boys clothes up until we moved here,now i dont have time and I doubt they would be happy either with handsewn,doesnt look like Fox etc...

  6. Hi Corrie,
    I know!! I'm so excited and can't wait to get it in the post.

    Hi Ab,
    I love the earings too. I'm thinking of getting my little princess done at xmas time.

    Hi Cathie,
    I think mum was the same with us kids when we reached a certain age. It's a pity, that's the way society makes us I guess.


  7. What adorable 2 you were! Totally sweet! I never had any hair either. I think it arrived around 2.5 yrs old. Anyhow, you are as cute as can be.

  8. What a little cutie you were :)

  9. I've created a new flickr group to post your photos to help advertise MadeIt if your interested.
