30 days of Shirley Temple! Modern Romper for the Kawaii Kid

Morning all!  Today I'm sharing the outfit I made for my little sugarplum for {affiliate linkMax-California's 30 days of Shirley Temple!

So I love classic looks with a wacky modern twist. That's my thing, that's my go-to combo.  So, for me, I had to think of a way to make this idea of Shirley Temple work with my personal aesthetic in which wouldn't involve 100+ yards of gathering fabric for a pettiskirt.  I mean, I love the look of them on my kiddos but the time intensiveness of making one at the moment was a bit overwhelming!  I thought then about what other things I love on pics of child fashion from yesteryear that you don't see so every day.  And I love Korean kids fashion.  I mean, I'm a bit obsessed. 

I took a romper pattern that I used previously, modified the face a bit, and added a pleated top skirt to the look.

Right before the photoshoot I decided to make a kerchief for her to wear!  ^_^

I wanted to give the pictures an old magazine or storybook feel!

All in all I think it turned out pretty darn cute!  Thanks Max for having me!  

 My little garden gnome!

Hugs and Stitches and many many smooches,


Here's a couple gag pics for your amusement!
