Pictured above is a photo of my grandmother as a baby in a cute dress. Next to it is a cute dress I had made to closely match the dress (as best as we can based off the photo quality). Now the dress is not an exact replica. The dress was made by a woman on Etsy to closely match the dress my grandma wore.
My aunt recently sent a photo of my grandma to me – and notified me that my baby girl looks similar to her. She was correct. The face shape and nose are identical. While my daughter’s eyes resemble my grandfather’s eyes. So I decided to order a dress for her and try to recreate the photo above. I just received the dress and I ordered a white slip to go under it from another Etsy shop as well that I am waiting on. So with any luck for Valentine’s Day, we will have a cute recreation of the photo above.
Here are the links to the places I bought the dresses from, in case you find yourself interested in Crochet Pinafores or baby sized white dresses.

I love hand made items, the meaning they have is greater than some factory created outfit. After Lillian grows out of this dress, which won’t be too long since it was made to fit her now, I plan to save it for her future children. That way they can have some of her past if they would like.
