when we were young guest post

one of the more creative and fun blog series going on over the last few months, i think, has been When We Were Young, hosted by Suz of Sew Pony.  Suz is a relatively new on the scene Aussie blogger who has already released an adorable first pattern, and she’s going to be a contestant on the next season of Project Run & Play!  I love her sweet vintage style, and am excited to see what she does next!

Suz asked me to join her fantastic guest lineup for her first blog series months ago, and it’s fiiiiinally time for my post!  the challenge was to take a photo from my childhood and recreate the outfit for my little one.  it’s been really fun seeing what all the other guests have posted so far, and here’s the outfit i picked…me in a romper climbing a fence in 1986.

very retro romper

if you’d like to see what I made for Em, head on over to Sew Pony for the post!

fun times.

    I don’t think that could have been anymore fun! I just loved the romper you sewed for Em- yours must have been from Julia or Melissa/Mary? I actually took a drive to see the sheep last weekend when Clara fell asleep in the car and it’s in pretty rough shape- no more sheep. I don’t think it’s changed hands since Mom and Dad sold it. Have you ever taken the kids to go see it?

    oh, super cute! I love rompers!! Makes me want to try find some for my girls; it’s been a couple years, at least, since they rocked a romper. oh, the nostalgia! Love the pictures of you, too. You look so much the same! 🙂

    oh! so cute! Both versions of the romper are pretty awesome, actually. I totally see O in your little kid face too! Where did you take pictures of Em?
