My neighbour and good friend Liz is a knitting genius.
She makes those needles fly!
Yesterday she gave Annie this beautiful knitted cardigan and hat.
She looks completely adorable in it.
Here she is this morning eating a last minute pikelet before we rush off.
I had a little dress I brought a couple of years ago from the opshop.
It's a pleated skirt on a white cotton bodice.
I used to wear them all the time in the 1970s
and my sisters wore them in the 1980s.
How cute is this??
She could easily be Sharyn or Jo or myself a good few years ago.
Close up of skirt. Completely cute.
And the hat with the tassel - adorable.
I'm trying to convince her she should be a marching girl.
I always wanted to be a marching girl.
Their outfits are so cute.
Liz altered the pattern because Annie always says "Just one button"
when you put a cardy on her. She loves just having the top button done up.
The collar is very cute too and perfect for this bitter winter we are having.
By the way did you notice one of the panda bears is a bit pink??
She had a washing incident the other day with a red dress, oops.
And luckily for me this child likes wearing clothes like this.
She hasn't discovered the whole princess barbie look
and the longer things stay that way the better I like it.
The 1970s and 1980s knew how to dress kidlets!!
